For ENERGY STAR Home Buyers

If you are looking for a new home, the ENERGY STAR for New Homes program can offer you everything you want, plus energy-efficient features that deliver better performance, greater comfort, and lower utility bills. You can rest assured that your new ENERGY STAR certified home will save energy, save money, and help protect the environment by operating more efficiently.

SMECO’s ENERGY STAR for New Homes program promotes energy-efficient construction so you can enjoy the peace of mind you’ll get from knowing that your new home meets strict government-backed guidelines for energy efficiency.
