The Little Label With a Big Message: Better is Better

ENERGY STAR New homes

Choice Builders is proud to offer new homes that have earned the ENERGY STAR® label. The ENERGY STAR label means that your new home has been designed and built to standards well above other homes in the market today.  It means better quality, better comfort, and better durability.  It also means that your new home is a better value for today, and a better investment for tomorrow. The ENERGY STAR label gives you the peace of mind that your home has undergone a better process for inspections, testing, and verification to ensure that it meets strict requirements set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). ENERGY STAR certified homes are better because they are designed and built to provide homeowners:

Peace of Mind | The Result of a Home That’s Built Better

With the ENERGY STAR label on your new home, you can be confident that it will deliver.  When ENERGY STAR requirements are applied to new home construction, an integrated approach to design combined with tried-and-true best building practices adds up to a durable, comfortable home with reduced utility and maintenance costs. Our ENERGY STAR certified homes have undergone more inspections and testing than typical homes to ensure that your new home was built to higher standards.

Enduring Quality | Better Systems Make All the Difference

Purchasing a new home is a big investment, so it’s important to be sure that it’s built to last. We’ve designed all of our new ENERGY STAR certified homes to include value-adding energy efficiency features and a combination of materials and equipment that will deliver better performance.

ENERGY STAR certified new homes include features like:

  • A complete Thermal Enclosure System that includes comprehensive air sealing, quality-installed insulation, and high-performance windows, to deliver improved comfort and lower utility bills.
  • A high-efficiency Heating, Ventilation, and Cooling System that is designed and installed for optimal performance.
  • A comprehensive Water Management System to protect roofs, walls, and foundations from moisture damage.
  • Energy-efficient Lighting and Appliances to help keep utility bills low, while providing high-quality performance and longevity.

Wall-to-Wall Comfort | A Better Way to Live  

Ask anyone who lives in an ENERGY STAR certified home to go back to their old home. You’ll likely hear that there’s no way they’ll give up the comfort that came with the ENERGY STAR label on their new home. From the moment you walk in the door of an ENERGY STAR certified home, you’ll see, feel, and hear the difference.

Proven Value | A Better Investment for Today & Tomorrow

ENERGY STAR certified new homes offer better energy efficiency and performance compared to other homes, making them a better value for today and a better investment for tomorrow. Homes earning the ENERGY STAR label use 20-30 percent less energy than typical new homes, and even more when compared to most resale homes on the market today.

“After purchasing my Eco Friendly “Energy Star Certified” home from Choice builders earlier this year, quite frankly I was a bit skeptical about the claims being made to save on monthly utility costs. Upon receiving my first electric bill in April I thought the utility company made a mistake. May was an unusually warm month here in Cedar City so as a test I left several appliances turned on longer than normal and ran the air conditioner at a much lower temperature than usual. My electric bill for May was 2/3 less than my other home for the same time period. As an added benefit – since this home is so well sealed – there is very little dusting required and dealing with allergies is less problematic.”
