While other builders boast energy-efficient construction, few are actually ENERGY STAR 3.0 certified. Earning this respected designation means more than just installing a high efficiency dishwasher in a kitchen or using compact fluorescent light bulbs.

Owning an Energy Star 3.0 home means:

  • Annual savings of up to 30% on utility bills
  • Whole-house energy efficient technologies that are independently tested and verified
  • Wall-to-wall comfort with consistent temperatures across every room
  • Peace of mind knowing your home is built to the EPA’s stringent guidelines

Estimated Annual Operational Costs

McKee homes achieve this level of performance through a combination of energy-efficient enhancements, including:

  • Optimized insulation systems
  • High-performance windows
  • Tightly sealed construction
  • Leak-proof ductwork
  • Advanced heating and cooling equipment
  • ENERGY STAR certified lighting and appliances
    ...and much more!

To ensure that your home meets the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) stringent ENERGY STAR standards, third-party verification by a certified Home Energy Rater (or equivalent) is required.

The Rater works closely with McKee Builders throughout the entire construction process to help determine requisite energy-saving equipment and construction techniques, while conducting on–site diagnostic testing and inspections to document that the home is eligible to earn ENERGY STAR certification.
