What is an
ENERGY STAR® qualified home?
STAR is the identifying mark of energy-efficient products including equipment
and new homes. It provides consumers an easy way to recognize
energy-efficient homes that have been verified by a third party to meet ENERGY
STAR performance levels.
STAR qualified home uses less energy than a home built to the Texas building
code and actually provides you with a better lifestyle for less money! The
energy savings delivered by an ENERGY STAR qualified home result in lower
monthly utility bills, more favorable mortgage options, higher resale value, and
a greater comfort level than a home of the same, or even higher, purchase price. Actual savings may vary.
