Was the extra care taken to frame the house level and tight? Were top grade caulks and sealants used? Were the windows and doors and insulation installed correctly? Were the heating and air ducts sized properly so that the whole house is comfortable? When purchasing a house, these are the fundamentals that are not always apparent, but heavily impact the comfort of your home in terms of drafts, dust, moisture, pollen, pests and noise, as well as its long term maintenance.
In 2005, R.L. Beyer began partnering with the Environmental Protection Agency's ENERGY STAR program. It is one step toward quantifying those things you cannot always see. The Energy Star label denotes homes built tight and triple checked for leaks and inefficiencies—often times using up to 40% less energy than a standard home. R.L. Beyer customers save hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars a year in energy costs. It makes economic and environmental sense.
