Guildcrest has supported the use of energy efficient building practices for many years. Homes built with energy efficiency in mind not only consume fewer scarce natural resources; they are also more durable and comfortable for their occupants.
Guildcrest’s specifications include a number of features which promote energy efficiency, including such standards as:
These features combine to deliver a durable, energy efficient home, which will perform very well for most purchasers.
If you desire the “state-of-the-art” in energy efficient home construction, you may want to consider an ENERGY STAR home.
Energy-efficient and environmentally responsible, ENERGY STAR homes are built to high standards, making these homes at least 30 percent more energy efficient than required by the Building Codes. ENERGY STAR homes feature tight construction, advanced windows, sealed ducts, improved insulation and high-efficiency heating and cooling equipment.
With an ENERGY STAR home, owners enjoy improved indoor air quality, comfort and lower utility costs.
The ENERGY STAR Home Program is part of the family of ENERGY STAR Programs sponsored by Natural Resources Canada and EnerQuality Corporation in Canada, and the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy in the U.S.
ENERGY STAR building standards exceed the current Code minimums, and are equivalent to an EnerGuide 80 rating in Canada or a Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Five Star Home in the U.S.
Guildcrest is proud to be part of the ENERGY STAR Home Program.
