Your Key to Energy Savings

Every new home is built to be efficient in its use of energy.
Whether that energy is in the form of electricity or natural gas, homes today are designed and constructed to help the homeowner save money.

Understanding how to use energy efficient features of your home will allow you to maximize your savings and make the most of your investment.


Windows and doors (also referred to as fenestration) are rated for energy efficiency.


Always make sure your refrigerator and freezer are full, even if it is bottled water.


For items like computers or printers one rule of thumb applies: If you’re not using it, turn it off.

Heating & Air Conditioning

Heating and air conditioning (HVAC) represent 38% of monthly energy expenses.
