Bachman Builders is pleased to announce our 100% commitment to ENERGY STAR in 2021. All of the homes that we will build in 2021 will earn the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA’s) ENERGY STAR certification. 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. By making this commitment, Bachman Builders has earned special EPA recognition.
“Bachman Builders is pleased to offer all of our clients more efficient, durable, and comfortable homes that are labeled to ENERGY STAR,” said David Bachman, Owner of Bachman Builders. “Through our ENERGY STAR participation, we are demonstrating our commitment to energy efficient construction.”
“We see the 100% ENERGY STAR commitment as the real mark of leadership among American home builders,” said Jonathan Passe, Chief of the ENERGY STAR Residential Branch. “It’s a commitment to excellence in terms of lower utility bills, greater home comfort, and environmental protection.”
Homes earning the ENERGY STAR label are designed and built to standards well above most other homes on the market today. When ENERGY STAR’s rigorous requirements are applied to new home construction, the result is a home built better from the ground up, delivering better durability, better comfort, and reduced utility and maintenance costs. Features of an ENERGY STAR certified home include:
- A Complete Thermal Enclosure System — Comprehensive air sealing, properly installed insulation, and high-performance windows work together to enhance comfort, improve durability, reduce maintenance costs, and lower monthly utility bills.
- A Complete Heating and Cooling System — High-efficiency systems that are engineered and installed to deliver more comfort, better moisture control, improved indoor air quality, and quieter operation.
- A Complete Water Management System — A comprehensive package of best building practices and materials protects roofs, walls and foundations from water damage, provides added protection, and reduces the risk of indoor air quality problems.
- Energy-Efficient Lighting and Appliances — ENERGY STAR qualified lighting, appliances, and fans are commonly installed throughout ENERGY STAR certified homes, helping to reduce monthly utility bills, while providing high-quality performance.
