Fulton Homes takes pride in its long-term commitment to make sure every new home it builds is not only Energy Star Certified but actually surpasses all current Energy Star requirements. Energy Star is a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency voluntary program that helps businesses and individuals save money and protect our climate through superior energy efficiency. What does this mean for you when you buy a Fulton Energy Star Home?
First, it will save you money every month. Fulton homes are well insulated, helping to ensure that the energy used to heat and cool your home is used efficiently. Fulton adds a Lousiana Pacific Tech Shield Radiant Barrier that deflects heat away from your attic to every home – helping you save on cooling all summer long. Fulton also equips every home with a 14 SEER Carrier Air Conditioner with excellent cooling and energy efficiency. Fulton’s new Legacy community offers an even higher standard: a 16 SEER Carrier Unit. And by installing Merv 6 Return Air Filters your A/C unit will run even more smoothly.
The tight construction standards Fulton Homes practices include Foam Seal on All Exterior Doors to reduce air leakage and High-performance Vinyl Windows (minimum of .35 & .25) that also reduce the UV rays from entering your home. This type of well-sealed home requires a precise approach to fresh air exchange to avoid the problem of indoor air pollution. To support that, Fulton Homes installs an outside air exchange fan.
Fulton Homes is proud to certify all our new homes to EPA’s Indoor airPLUS indoor air quality standard. To meet that goal, we only use Low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) interior paints and carpeting which protect your family as well as the environment.
Finally, our Energy Star homes are inspected by a 3rd party inspection company, where exhaustive tests are performed on all Fulton homes by Energy Inspectors. At Fulton, we have an ongoing commitment to meeting and exceeding Energy Star standards on 100% of the homes we build because it’s the right thing to do – for our environment and our homebuyers.
