Why Energy Star?

Categories: Uncategorized | Posted: November 20, 2008

Ivey Residential started with the Energy Star program in 2006 as our first foray into “green building”.  Why?  First and foremost the requirements of Energy Star provide the biggest bang for the buck.  If you’re not at least building to the Energy Star level then don’t move to the next step.  As we’ve gotten more in tune with building green, we’ve added some advanced construction techniques to our standard program.

What is the next step?  The next step will be consumer driven, or as we like to call it “What Shade of Green are You?”  There are many additional steps that can be added for increased energy efficiency, and better resource management.  All of which cost money.  By having many additional options available, we hope the consumer will see the benefit and choose additional green options.
