What Makes an Energy Star Home... Better?

What Makes an Energy Star Home... Better?

January 2, 2024

Here at Capital Homes, we are proud to offer new homes that have earned the ENERGY STAR® label. ENERGY STAR® certified homes are designed and built to provide superior comfort and savings compared to most new homes currently on the market. Offering more than just efficient appliances, the ENERGY STAR® label gives you the peace of mind that your home has undergone a better process for inspections, testing, and verification to ensure that it meets strict requirements set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). When these requirements are met, the result is a home built better from the ground up, delivering better durability, better comfort, and reduced utility and maintenance costs.

What makes an ENERGY STAR® home better?
Our ENERGY STAR® certified homes have undergone more inspections and testing than typical homes to ensure that your new home was built to higher standards. You will see, feel, and hear the difference of the fully integrated approach to design and construction.

Reduced Leaks and Drafts
Comprehensive air sealing, quality-installed insulation, and high performance windows and doors minimize warm and cold spots.

More Consistent Temperatures
A high efficiency heating and cooling system, designed and installed for optimal performance, ensure better comfort in every room, year-round.

Utility Savings
ENERGY STAR homes are at least 10% more energy efficient and have an average savings of $250 per year.

Better Durability
A comprehensive water management system, including flashing, moisture barriers, and heavy-duty membranes, protects roofs, walls, and foundations from moisture damage.

Improved Indoor Air
A fresh-air system provides a controlled amount of outdoor air. Combines with a high-performance filter, this improves indoor air quality and reduces dust, pollen and other allergens.

We make it easy to save money and protect the environment by meeting strict requirements set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.  Each ENERGY STAR® certified home reduces greenhouse gases (GHB) by 3,287 lbs. per year compared to a typical home. Which is equivalent to the GHP emissions absorbed by planting 39 trees. 

ENERGY STAR® certified homes are at least 10% more energy efficient than homes built to code - and even more compared to existing homes.  Which makes deciding to make all our homes ENERGY STAR® certified a no brainer. Find out more by scheduling an appointment today at
