In 2007 John Marshall Custom Homes made a commitment that all of our new homes would be ENERGY STAR certified. Today we’re happy to announce that our most recent new home has received ENERGY STAR certification.
Built at 631 James Alexander Way in downtown Davidson, North Carolina, this home received a “five-star +” rating from ENERGY STAR, the highest possible. Through the use of spray foam insulation, energy efficient HVAC, appliances and windows, and other techniques, this house will use 35% less energy than a home built to the current energy code.
This home was also built under the ‘LEED for Homes’ program, and we expect to receive official LEED certification within the next two weeks. Please stay tuned for that announcement.
ENERGY STAR is a program of the U.S. EPA, and benefits homeowners through lower energy costs, improved indoor air quality, and a more durable home. For more information visit www.energystar.gov
