Energy Star Homes

Share this on:

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Energy Star program (an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency) is gaining momentum. In 2006, another 200,000 new homes qualified for the Energy Star. That brings the grand total to over 750,000 Energy Star homes across America.

Not only are these homes energy efficient and better for the environment, but they provide greater comfort, lower utility bills, and improved performance. These homes have saved homeowners $180 million by conserving over 1 billion kWh of electricity and 100 million therms of natural gas.
