Energy Star Version 3 Verification
Make sure your next home is green
Green building means improving the way that homes and the building process use energy, water, and materials to reduce impacts on health and the environment. Building a green home means making environmentally-preferable and sustainable decisions throughout the building process-decisions that will minimize the environmental impact of the home while it is being built and over the many years it will be lived in.
These energy efficiency improvements not only save money, they provide a house that is warm in the winter and cool in the summer. By providing comfortable homes efficiently, homeowners are operating their homes using less power, and less resources, a green choice that continues to give back years after the home is complete.
