At Ivey Homes, we strive to bring you 100% ENERGY STAR Certified Homes at an affordable price. But, what does the ENERGY STAR name mean for you as a customer?

 

  1. Peace of Mind
    • When rigorous ENERGY STAR requirements are applied to new home construction, you get a home that’s built better from the ground up. The combination of a fully integrated approach to design and construction with tried-and-true best building practices adds up to a home with better durability, better comfort, and reduced utility and maintenance costs.
  2. Enduring Quality
    • The comprehensive method  of ENERGY STAR delivers systems that work together to provide better performance and an overall superior level of quality, especially when compared to most resale homes on the market today. Ivey has designed a home that includes value-adding energy efficiency features and components, and the best combination of materials and equipment that will work together to deliver better performance.
  3. Wall-to-Wall Comfort
    • From the moment you walk into your Ivey Home, you’ll see, feel, and hear the difference. You’ll find that air leaks and drafts are diminished, humidity levels are controlled, and even outdoor noise is reduced.
  4. Proven Value
    • ENERGY STAR certified homes are at least 10% more energy efficient than homes built to code and achieve a 20% improvement, on average, while providing homeowners with better quality, performance, and comfort. When the time comes to consider selling your home, the ENERGY STAR label will prove your home is of genuine quality, comfort, and efficiency.
