Fireside Home Construction Commits to Building the Next Generation of ENERGY STAR Qualified Homes

We are proud to announce that we committed to build and label our homes to meet the new and more rigorous ENERGY STAR requirements set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) for 2012.

What does this mean for you, the homeowner? Here are some details:

ENERGY STAR qualified homes that earn the label in 2012 will be built with a comprehensive, building science-based approach that features:

  • A detailed package of home envelope air sealing, properly installed insulation, and high-performance windows to deliver comfort, durability, and lower utility bills.
  • A high-efficiency heating, cooling, and ventilation system designed and installed for optimal performance.
  • A complete water and moisture management package to protect roofs, walls, and foundations.
  • ENERGY STAR certified lighting and appliances that help reduce monthly utility bills.
  • Third-party verification, with independent inspections and testing by a certified Home Energy Rater.

We continue to focus on being Michigan's Leading Green Builder - let us know how we can help you or if you'd like more information on this new ENERGY STAR commitment.
