Buying a new home with built-in energy efficiency not only gives you control over your energy, but helps saves money on energy bills, too.

Owning an energy-efficient home has its advantages

An APS ENERGY STAR® home is at least 20% more energy- efficient than a typical new home. That can add up to a lot of savings every month. Not to mention the increased comfort, better indoor air quality, reduced noise and improved durability you’ll get to live with every day.

Windows


High-tech windows that look after you

Energy-efficient windows in an APS ENERGY STAR® Home lets in plenty of natural light, but also minimize the sun’s heat while blocking 90% of harmful UV rays to help protect carpets and fabrics. Features include low-E coated glass, advanced window frames and proper flashing, weather stripping and window finish details.

 

Appliances


Plug into savings with energy-saving appliances

ENERGY STAR® appliances and lighting help reduce utility bills without sacrificing comfort or convenience. While they might cost slightly more than their conventional counterparts, you’ll quickly see the savings from increased efficiency and performance. Qualified products typically use up to 75% less energy and feature extended warranties.

Clean Air


Clean air indoors is a breath of fresh air

An APS ENERGY STAR® Home helps you breathe easier with a ventilation system specially designed to draw in, filter and distribute fresh outdoor air evenly throughout every room. So you and your family can take comfort knowing that the air inside your home is clean and healthy

Insulation


Insulate yourself from outside temperatures

Properly installed insulation in an APS ENERGY STAR® Home helps the HVAC system work more efficiently and keep inside temperatures even and comfortable, no matter what the weather is outside. In addition to blanketing the entire home with insulation, all gaps and voids are filled before drywall is installed and ductwork is carefully sealed.
