Home: Green: For Home Buyers
Option 1: Energy Efficient
An energy efficient home uses energy efficient products such as high performance windows and doors, tight seals on insulation and ducts, and efficient heating/cooling equipment, lighting fixtures and appliances. Homes that operate at least 30% more efficiently than a standard home are elibible to receive the ENERGY STAR® label.
Excel Homes is a proud ENERGY STAR partner and we routinely build homes that meet or exceed ENERGY STAR guidelines. We build home modules in our state-of-the-art factories, which allow us to produce much "tighter" houses than those built on-site. In fact, Excel homes operate at least 15 percent more efficiently than a standard home. To earn an ENERGY STAR label, the home must meet specific guidelines.
