Green Building

What this means for Kaeser Home Owners

  • Save 65% of current heat and air conditioning costs for structures 5000 square feet.
  • A well insulated home eliminates the expansion and contraction of wood trims and moldings which require annual caulking and repainting
  • It eliminates the need for multiple air handlers which occupy valuable space and require regular maintenance
  • It reduces the need for multiple zones in large homes and maintains a constant temperature.
Energy Star To earn the ENERGY STAR, a home must meet strict guidelines for energy efficiency set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. These homes are at least 15% more energy efficient than homes built to the 2004 International Residential Code (IRC), and include additional energy-saving features that typically make them 20–30% more efficient than standard homes.

Not only does Kaeser use Energy Star Certified appliances in his homes, he installs Energy Star certified heating and cooling systems which get the whole house a superior Energy Star rating.
