ENERGY STAR® for New Homes Features

What does the ENERGY STAR® label mean?

To earn the label, a home must be built by a licensed ENERGY STAR® builder to a higher standard of energy efficiency– behind the walls, up in the attic and under the foundation. Look for the familiar ENERGY STAR® label, usually found on the electrical panel in the utility room.
