Bachman Builders was one of the first local builders to join the EPA Energy Star program. Many builders soon followed but quickly dropped out of the program as the requirements and standards became more difficult to meet. Still, many builders say that they build to Energy Star standards, but do not submit to the testing and do not achieve certification. (This is like someone claiming to be a doctor even though they did not pass their boards.)
We embrace the EP Energy Star program and are proud that every one of our homes exceeds Energy Star requirements. We are very aware of indoor air quality and take measures to ensure that our homes are as comfortable for our clients as they are energy efficient. Acknowledging that there is an increased, upfront investment following Energy Star standards, we still firmly believe that education and teamwork with all our trades, and a desire for constant improvement creates a very rewarding payback for our clients.
