A COMPLETE THERMAL ENCLOSURE SYSTEM
You want your home to be comfortable no matter what room you’re in or what the weather is outside. Comprehensive air sealing, properly installed insulation, and high-performance windows work together in an ENERGY STAR qualified home to deliver better comfort, better durability, reduced maintenance costs, and lower monthly utility bills. During construction, ENERGY STAR builder partners must meet all of the requirements of EPA’s comprehensive thermal enclosure system inspection to ensure that-
Your new home is tightly sealed to reduce leaks and drafts; and thermal bridging across walls is minimized.
Correct levels of insulation are selected to provide whole-house comfort.
Insulation is installed properly to deliver the best performance.
When builders meet these rigorous requirements, you get a home with a complete thermal enclosure system—a better approach to building a better home.
A COMPLETE HEATING ANDCOOLING SYSTEM
Your home’s heating and cooling system should do more than just provide cooled or heated air. It should keep you comfortable and provide better moisture control, improved indoor air quality, and quieter operation as efficiently as possible. This can be done by ensuring your HVAC system is installed properly. New homes that meet ENERGY STAR guidelines require proper installation of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment.
Home Energy Raters then verify the system’s installation through completion of their own checklist that involves quality inspections and tests. This helps ensure your system was designed specifically for your new home so you can be confident that it is functioning efficiently and effectively.
A COMPLETE WATER MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
ENERGY STAR certified homes include a comprehensive package of water management practices and materials that help to protect your home from water damage and reduce the risk of indoor air quality problems. During construction, ENERGY STAR builder partners must meet EPA’s comprehensive water management requirements to prevent rain and moisture from building up in living areas, attics, basements, crawlspaces, or behind walls. These water management requirements help ensure that-
Water is directed off the roof, down the walls, and away from the foundation.
Your home is built with moisture-resistant barriers to prevent water damage.
Building materials are protected during construction to minimize the possibility of mold and rotting.
When builders meet these rigorous requirements, you get a home with a complete water management system—a better approach to building a better home.
ENERGY–EFFICIENT LIGHTING AND APPLIANCE
The lighting and appliances in your home come with two price tags—the purchase price and the cost to operate and maintain them. ENERGY STAR qualified lighting and appliances meet strict energy efficiency guidelines that deliver better performance, provide better quality, and help reduce home operating costs through lower monthly utility bills, while creating the style you are looking for in a new home.
During construction, ENERGY STAR builder partners often select efficient lighting and appliances to create a complete energy-efficient package that meets EPA’s rigorous guidelines-a better approach to building a better home.
INDEPENDENT INSPECTIONS AND TESTING

Your new home has the appropriate energy-efficient features that fit your climate region.
Critical construction details are verified at different building stages.

We really hope that local realtors in Thomasville, GA. take a few minutes to read this small description of the steps needed to build a true custom smart energy efficient home, and how a true energy saving home is documented by a third party, because right now on some listings it looks like local realtors are adding the key word “energy saving” without having any clue or documentation on the actual energy savings, would be considered misleading and by adding “AS
PER OWNER” does not remove the responsibility of the listing agent. If these agents need help we would be happy to explain it to them like if they were a two year old. “We can work with Ignorant, We can’t do much with Stupid”
