Energy Efficient Homes – The Arista Standard

Being energy efficient is a choice. Buying energy efficient homes and using energy efficient products and services in your day-to-day life is your choice; the choice to promote sustainability and protect the environment. Which is why many consumers and businesses have made their choices by leaning towards ENERGY STAR® certified products.

You might be wondering, “What is ENERGY STAR®?” ENERGY STAR® is an initiative that consumers and businesses have taken in order to endorse energy efficiency. Because of ENERGY STAR®, people can make well-informed decisions to better the environment. For 25+ years, ENERGY STAR® has contributed in saving consumers and businesses in America nearly 4 trillion kilowatt-hours of electricity and achieve over 3 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas reductions.

One way they accomplish this is with their energy efficient certified homes. ENERGY STAR® certified homes are energy efficient built homes, meaning they were built with less amount of energy (which ultimately means that the energy bill is lower), and there is way less pollution. Because of these factors, they are at least 10% more energy efficient than homes that are simply built to code. They also achieve a 20% improvement, all while providing homeowners with better quality, performance, and overall comfort! Are you still not impressed? What if we told you that in 2017, American homeowners living in ENERGY STAR® certified new homes avoided $400 million in energy costs alone? Now that’s cool!

ENERGY STAR® is dedicated to contributing energy efficiency not only for products and buildings, but also for the economy and environment. Click here to learn more about the ENERGY STAR® way.

ENERGY STAR® Certified Homes vs. Non-ENERGY STAR® Certified Homes

Many homes, or buildings consume more energy than what is needed. A home that isn’t an ENERGY STAR® certified home is more likely to have high utility bills and maintenance costs, plus it could be uncomfortable to live in. These homes are also more likely to have drafts and leaks, poorly performing heating and cooling systems, chronic moisture and indoor air quality problems.

An ENERGY STAR® Certified home is simply put, an energy efficient home. It is about using less energy to get the same job done – and ultimately preventing high energy bills and unnecessary pollution.

What do Tiny Homes and ENERGY STAR® certified homes have in common? They’re both energy efficient. And it turns out that being energy efficient isn’t just good for the environment, it’s also trending!

Home designs have evolved over time and often reflect societal trends. Societal trends like unicorn latte’s, goat yoga, or a particular hard seltzer might be all over your Instagram feed. This doesn’t necessarily mean we’ll build you a unicorn themed home, but more so that home designs have been inspired by certain trends, like activism for climate change. People are taking to the streets to spread the word on climate change, in a desperate call for help. Some do their parts by trying to live a sustainable life, we do ours by building homes that are energy efficient. Click here to see which other home designs are both trendy and green!
