Energy Star Built Homes
Save up to $100 a Month with an Energy Star Certified Home!
Savings: What would you do with an extra $100 a month for the next 30 years? A savings of $36,000 equals a new car, vacations with your family, a college fund or money for your retirement plan! A new ENERGY STAR® Certified Home by Main Street Homes can be over 30% more efficient than a standard new home, and over 60% more efficient than a 20-year-old-home. This adds up to a significant energy cost savings for you over the life of your new construction home.
Value: The ENERGY STAR® label means that your new home has been designed and built to standards well above other homes in the market today. It means better quality, comfort and durability.
Quality: The ENERGY STAR® label gives you the peace of mind that your home has undergone a rigorous process for inspection, testing, and verification to ensure that it meets the strict requirements set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Energy & Cost Savings
Homes built by Main Street Homes are rated by the Homes Energy Rating System (HERS), which measures a home's energy efficiency. Homebuyers can compare the energy savings of any new construction home or resale home against a home built by Main Street Homes. On average, a new home by Main Street Homes is at least 60% more efficient than an older resale home. That translates into a savings of up to $100 a month in utility bills and energy savings for the next 30 years which equals a savings of up to $36,000 in your pocket!
Reduced Greenhouse Gases
Each ENERGY STAR® certified home reduces greenhouse gases (GHG) by 3,700 lbs. per year compared to a typical home. This is equivalent to the GHG emissions absorbed by planting 43 trees.
