Energy-Efficient Homes

Tom Palmer Homes has built several Energy-Star qualified homes in the greater Charlotte market. On custom homes, we offer the option the construction of homes that have earned the ENERGY STAR® label. ENERGY STAR qualified new homes are typically more energy-efficient than homes built to normal building code requirements. Learn more about ENERGY STAR qualified new homes at http://www.energystar.gov/.

Homeowners who buy ENERGY STAR-qualified homes enjoy the following benefits:

  • Lower monthly utility bills
  • Improved heating and air conditioning performance
  • Potential for better resale value
  • Improved protection from hot and cold air drafts, moisture, pests, pollen, noise and air pollution
  • A hedge against potential future price hikes by utility providers
  • The peace of mind that comes from reduced energy consumption and a smaller carbon footprint

Depending on the utilities in a given neighborhood, ENERGY STAR qualified homes can qualify for discounts from utility providers. For example, Duke Energy offers special, discounted rates for ENERGY STAR certified homes.

If you're considering building a custom home, we invite you to ask us about the many options available for achieving energy efficiency.
