It’s one thing for us to brag on how energy efficient our IveyWise homes are, and how much money they’ll save you.  It’s another thing for you to hear it straight from an actual homeowner.  One of our homeowners, Jim Mayfield, has provided us with the average of his power bills since he moved into his new Ivey home in July, 2012.

Average gas bill – $47.67

Average electric bill – $131.87

And, Jim notes, “As our home is about 7,000 square feet of climate controlled living space, I think you guys did a remarkable job on building and insulating this LEED certified home. “

The exclusive IveyWise program includes features and benefits that ensure that every new home we build is on the cutting edge of efficiency, affordability and convenience, while employing the most progressive construction techniques.

From insulation to roof sheathing, advanced framing to programmable thermostats, IveyWise homes includes features and construction techniques that go over and above what the ICC prescribes in the International Building Code for new construction. Plus, IveyWise homes include low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) paint, carpet and hardwood floor glue, which make them healthier in addition to being energy efficient.

Other builders may offer a handful of features that we have included in IveyWise, but Ivey Homes was the first builder in the Augusta area to go 100% ENERGY STAR and is one of a select few that still build 100% ENERGY STAR. In addition, we’ve worked many years to balance the many green choices available between costs and payback. We think we’ve got the mix right.

Ivey Homes is a leading new home builder in Augusta, GA, with home pricing ranging from the $130,000’s to Custom.  For more information about living in or building a new home in Columbia County or Augusta, visit iveyhomes.com!
