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.

Start Your Year Off With A Healthy Home

healthy homeA new year usually brings resolutions to be healthier, so why not live in a home that is healthier too? At Ivey Homes we take several measures to make sure we are providing you a home that is healthier.

  • We are the only 100% ENERGY STAR Certified builder in the CSRA area. This means the home is healthier – for you and the environment, more cost-efficient to operate, and provides comfort features to make your busy life easier.
  • We use low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) paint, carpet and hardwood floor glue. VOCs react with other elements to produce ozone, which causes air pollution and a host of health issues. Air barriers and air sealing isolate living areas from fumes, contaminants or allergens that might come through the attic or walls.
  • We cut back on air leakage. Air leakage is the single biggest loss of energy in a home. Ivey homes include extensive air barriers to seal gaps and block random air movement through the new home. Air sealing controls moisture, prevents dirt and pollen from leaking inside the home, and reduces air flow throughout the home, thereby increasing indoor air quality and energy efficiency.
  • Our homes have never been lived in before. Meaning nobody else’s dirt, germs, hair, and toenails are in the carpet.
