ENERGY STAR Certified Homes by Ivey

Categories: Energy Efficiency | Posted: February 22, 2022

If you’ve been following us for a while, then you’ve probably heard that all Ivey Homes are 100% ENERGY STAR Certified. You may know this, but do you know exactly what that means? Well, to start, ENERGY STAR® is the government-backed symbol for energy efficiency, providing simple, credible, and unbiased information that consumers and businesses rely on to make well-informed decisions. Thousands of industrial, commercial, utility, state, and local organizations—including more than 40 percent of the Fortune 500®—rely on their partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to deliver cost-saving energy efficiency solutions. Ivey Homes has been building ENERGY STAR Certified homes since 2004 and has been awarded the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year award eight years running. So, what exactly do you get in an ENERGY STAR Certified new home?

  • Peace of Mind – The result of better design and construction. With the ENERGY STAR label on your new home, you can be confident that it will deliver and has been built better from the ground up. With an Ivey home, you are creating a healthy and happy place for your family while building wealth and equity.
  • Enduring Quality – Better systems make all the difference. A new home is a big investment, so it’s important that it be designed with features built to last. All Ivey homes include features and benefits that ensure your new home is on the cutting edge of efficiency. An Ivey home employs the most progressive construction techniques while maintaining affordability and beauty.
  • Wall-To-Wall Comfort – Ivey Homes provide comfort features to make your busy life easier. From the moment you walk in the door of your ENERGY STAR certified home, you’ll see, feel, and hear the difference.
  • Proven Value – An Ivey home is more cost-efficient to operate saving, on average, 15-30% on monthly utility bills because of ENERGY STAR construction. Each Ivey home is third-party rated and given a HERS Index Score that serves as the MPG for your new home. The lower the score the less you pay in energy bills!
