McConnell Homes offers a variety of energy efficient upgrades
for your new home including certifying the home through the EPA's ENERGY STAR
program. Our employees and subcontractors have been trained in Green Building
techniques to ensure you're getting the best house for your dollar and the environment.
Each house is evaluated based on plans, insulation, solar heat-gain of its windows
and doors, and the energy efficiency of the mechanical systems and appliances.
Upgrading your custom home to an ENERGY STAR home may not
be as expensive as you think. An increase in the energy efficiency of your appliances
and mechanical units will benefit you with lower monthly utility bills for years
to come. We also give you the choice of enrolling in the Environment's For Living
program that guarantees your energy bill for three years. The program is nationally
recognized and the ENERGY STAR certification translates to a higher resale value
when you decide to sell your home.
Benefits of an ENERGY STAR labeled home:
Tighter construction techniques reduce air leaks and proper sizing of HVAC systems
increase efficiency and lower your energy usage. ENERGY STAR appliances and low
flow plumbing fixtures also help reduce energy and water consumption.
We provide a filtered outside air source for each HVAC system to remove stale
air from your home. This filters allergens and pollutants preventing them from
entering the home; and in addition filters them out of your indoor air, potentially
reducing asthma and allergies.
By building your home with high quality materials and installing them properly,
we provide our homeowners with peace of mind and a house that will age gracefully.
and quieter home
Making your house tighter keeps temperatures regulated evenly throughout the house.
Proper sealing and installation of insulation and windows keeps your house tight
and free of those cold corners and rooms.

used in your house means you have a real impact on the air quality of your community
and your family. You can be proud your ENERGY STAR home uses 30% less energy than
other homes in your neighborhood.

your new home.
