Stanton Homes are ENERGY STAR Certified

Stanton Home Logo1With an economy like the present one everyone is looking for ways to save money, from groceries to gas to home utilities. Raleigh home builder, Stanton Homes has been building new homes in North Carolina for decades and recently announced a 100% commitment to building energy efficient homes that save money and improve the quality of living. This has earned them the ENERGY STAR qualification.

The ENERGY STAR qualification means that homes are 15% more energy efficient than those built to the International Residential Code. Strict guidelines are followed during the building process and then homes are inspected by a third party to see that they meet all the standards. These changes lead to monthly savings on utility bills and a more comfortable living atmosphere.

Custom homes built for Stanton Homes homebuyers are not required to take advantage of ENERGY STAR, but all homebuyers are educated on the advantages this certification has to offer. However, all speculative homes are built and certified as ENERGY STAR. Another option that Stanton Homes advises their homebuyers to look into is the EnergyWise home. This makes use of a state-of-the-art HVAC system that  reduces heating and cooling costs 50-70% monthly. Imagine the savings with that.

When it comes to saving money, even small amounts add up. On average, a home is lived in 7 to 8 years and this can add up to thousands of dollars over time. There are more than just financial benefits though. ENERGY STAR homes reduce dependence on natural resources as well as increases the air quality in a home. During or after the building process framing and insulation inspections take place to see that your home runs as efficiently as possible. Homes can save as much as 15% of their energy. ENERGY STAR is part of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy and has already resulted in saving Americans $19 billion dollars in 2008. These homes also keep out cold, heat, pollution and noise more than the average home. Choosing to have your home ENERGY STAR qualified will be valuable now and in the future.
