Energy Star

Homeowners are increasingly interested in green building. But what exactly makes a home green? Energy Star is a great place to start.

All homes built by Alan Fletcher Construction (both specs and custom) include features that produce a home that is generally 40% more efficient than standard homes built prior to 2013. Properly installed energy efficient improvements deliver better protection against cold, heat, drafts, moisture, pollution, and noise while offering greater durability. These homes save a significant amount annually on utility bills, while also typically requiring less maintenance costs.

ROI (Return on Investment) on cost of meeting our energy efficiency guidelines on a 3500 square foot home built by Alan Fletcher Construction is approximately (6) years

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


Properly installed insulation in the floors, walls, and attics of our homes provides even temperatures, increased comfort, and lower utility bills. We ensure that your new home is properly insulated to provide maximum efficiency.


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


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


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.


Our homes' duct systems 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.
