As a family homebuilder, we strive to be a leader in innovation, customer care and overall, in enhancing lives so that families can wake up and start their days in a safe, comfortable living environment. Throughout the year in the desert, and especially in the summer months as temperatures begin to rise to new heights, comfort comes in the form of cool AC & energy efficient homes that don’t break the bank when the electric bill comes in.
That is why we partner with Energy Star®, a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy. The program’s mission is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants. They also work to make it easy for consumers to identify and purchase energy-efficient products that offer savings on monthly energy bills—all of this without sacrificing the performance and desired features of the appliances or the comfort of the consumer.
ENERGY STAR certified new homes are said to offer better energy efficiency and performance compared to other homes, making them a better value for today and a better investment for tomorrow.
Did you know that Shea Homes®, which carry the ENERGY STAR label use up to 20-30 percent less energy than other non-certified new homes, and even more when compared to most resale homes on the market today? That means a percentage of your current bill could be going to something else! Together, families who purchased homes earning the ENERGY STAR label save more than $350 million each year on their utility bills.
Purchasing a new home is a big investment, so it’s important to know that your home is built to last. ENERGY STAR certified homes are designed and built to include value-adding energy efficiency features and a combination of materials and equipment that deliver better performance.
ENERGY STAR Certified Homes are built with:
Many of these features are behind walls, in the attic, and under the foundation. But these hidden details have an impact on the experience of living in an ENERGY STAR certified home. The decision to buy an ENERGY STAR certified new home is a decision to invest in a home you can count on.
But don’t take our word for it! Hear from real homeowners why ENERGY STAR certified homes are better!
