New Home Construction Energy Savings
From superior insulation to sustainable material, many new homebuilders offer energy efficient construction and design. That means increased value in the future and potentially lower bills immediately.
Various types of energy savings newly built homes can offer:
- According to newhomesource.com, newly built homes are up to 30% more energy efficient than homes built just 5 years ago.
- Because they are designed to reduce energy consumption, newly built homes are friendlier for the environment. Last year, the EPA estimates that owners of Energy Star Certified new homes saved a collective $270 million in energy costs and reduced greenhouse gases by an amount produced by 370,000 vehicles.
- New Construction homes are held to higher construction standards than older homes, plus modern construction materials are now more superior which translates into lower utility costs and reduced maintenance.
- New Construction homes reduce energy waste and promote a healthy living environment
- Newly built homes save, on average, 3,449 KWH a year. That’s enough energy to power your TV for 11 years or your coffee maker for 32 years!
- The most modern technology can be included in your New Construction home, like solar power, energy-efficient multi-pane windows and radiant barrier insulation.
