ENERGY STAR - Our Minimum Building Standards

Return to ENERGY STAR

Long after unpacking, you’ll appreciate the comfort and lower utility bills of Alan Fletcher Construction, Inc.'s ENERGY STAR® qualified homes.


R-15 INSULATION INSTALLED RIGHT

Properly installed insulation in the floors, walls, and attics of our homes provides even temperatures, increased comfort, and lower utility bills. Our homes undergo a rigorous, 16-point insulation inspection by an independent Home Energy Rater to ensure that your new home is properly insulated to provide maximum efficiency.


ENERGY STAR QUALIFIED HEATING

Our homes’ high-efficiency furnaces will keep you warm without breaking the bank. ENERGY STAR qualified furnaces are up to 15% more efficient than standard models - saving you up to $80 each year on your heating bills.


ENERGY STAR QUALIFIED AIR CONDITIONING

Cooling costs can make up a large part of your annual bill. ENERGY STAR qualified air conditioners in our homes run quieter, provide better humidity control, and improve your overall comfort.


TIGHT CONSTRUCTION

Our homes are sealed with caulks, foams, weather stripping, gaskets, and door sweeps to reduce holes and cracks in the home’s "envelope." This reduces your utility bills and improves the comfort and indoor air quality of your home by minimizing drafts, moisture, dust, pollen, and noise.


SIZED, SEALED, AND INSULATED DUCTS

Our homes' duct systems are independently tested to ensure peak efficiency. Properly sized, sealed, and insulted ducts can increase heating and cooling efficiency by as much as 20%, providing a quieter and more comfortable home with lower utility bills.
