Advantage Homes, LLC today is announcing that it is committing to build and label its homes to meet the new and more rigorous ENERGY STAR requirements set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) for 2012. Advantage Homes has already built numerous new energy efficient homes that have earned EPA’s ENERGY STAR to date, representing a significant savings on utility bills while avoiding greenhouse gas emissions.
“We’re proud to be making a commitment to continue building ENERGY STAR qualified homes in 2012,” said Advantage Homes President Rick Centra. “By stepping up to the new requirements, we’re going to be offering customers state-of-the-art performance in our energy efficient homes with a comprehensive package of features that deliver greater value, quality, and comfort than ever before.”
Homes built to the new, more rigorous requirements (referred to as “Version 3”) will be at least 15% more energy efficient than homes built to the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), and will include additional features to give them a performance edge of 20-30% compared to typical new homes and even more when measured against most re-sale homes on the market today.
ENERGY STAR qualified homes that earn the label in 2012 will be built with a comprehensive, building science-based approach that features:
A detailed package of home envelope air sealing, properly installed insulation, and high-performance windows to deliver comfort, durability, and lower utility bills.
A high-efficiency heating, cooling, and ventilation system designed and installed for optimal performance.
A complete water and moisture management package to protect roofs, walls, and foundations.
ENERGY STAR certified lighting and appliances that help reduce monthly utility bills.
Third-party verification, with independent inspections and testing by a certified Home Energy Rater.
“EPA has raised the bar for what families can expect when they buy a new home that has earned the ENERGY STAR,” said Jonathan Passe, Acting Chief of EPA’s ENERGY STAR Residential Branch. “Builders who meet the new ENERGY STAR requirements are making a strong statement about their leadership and commitment to providing American homebuyers with truly energy-efficient homes that offer lower utility bills and greater benefits for the environment.”
