carousel_quote_v2We’re proud at Fulton Homes that we have been named 2015 ENERGY STAR partner of the year.

Why is Fulton Homes committed to building only ENERGY STAR certified new homes? Because this certification ensures that you get a better house.

When we apply rigorous ENERGY STAR requirements to our new homes, the result is a home that is constructed better from the ground up, providing you with better durability, better comfort, as well as substantially-reduced utility and maintenance costs (up to 30% savings compared to a typical new home). This makes an ENERGY STAR certified home your logical choice for energy efficiency.

The fully-integrated approach to design and construction that is required to receive ENERGY STAR certification makes a difference you can see, feel, and hear. We apply these tried-and-true best building practices are applied to every ENERGY STAR certified new home, giving you the following plusses:

Reduced Leaks and Drafts: We minimize warm and cold spots through comprehensive air sealing, quality-installed insulation, and high performance windows and doors.

More Consistent Temperatures: With the installation of a high-efficiency heating and cooling system, designed for optimal performance you will experience better comfort in every room, year round.

Better Durability:With the comprehensive water management system built into your home, including flashing, moisture barriers, and heavy-duty membranes, roofs, walls and foundations are protected from moisture damage.

Improved Indoor Air: To keep your indoor fresh and refreshing, your ventilation system includes a fresh-air system that introduces a controlled amount of outdoor air. Combined with a high-performance filter, this improves air quality while reducing the dust, pollen and other allergens we experience here in the desert.

Peace of Mind: ENERGY STAR certification requires independent inspections and testing by trained and certified professionals, so you can sleep well knowing things were done right.

The average ENERGY STAR certified new home saves its families about $300 each year. And compared to other new homes, these homes reduce greenhouse gases by about 3,700 pounds per year, equivalent to the emissions absorbed through planting 43 trees. At Fulton Homes, we hope you will join our homeowners and over 1.5 million others across the United States and make the choice to purchase only an ENERGY STAR certified home.

Your New Indoor airPLUS Home

Inventory-Home-130-webOne advantage to a Fulton Home that you don’t see immediately comes from your home’s construction. We design and build all of our homes to be both Indoor airPLUS and ENERGY STAR Certified for improved indoor air quality as well as energy efficiency.

If you have concerns about mold, radon, carbon monoxide and other toxic chemicals in your home, you can trust that we share your concerns and build our homes with these issues in mind. Poor indoor air quality can cause serious problems for you and your family, including eye irritation, headaches, allergies, respiratory problems such as asthma and other serious health issues.

Indoor airPLUS construction specifications are designed to help improve indoor air quality (IAQ) in new homes compared with homes built to minimum code. However, these features alone cannot prevent all IAQ problems. Occupant behavior is also important for IAQ. For example, products used in the home after occupancy and smoking inside the home may both negatively impact the home’s IAQ and the performance of the specified Indoor airPLUS features.

Indoor airPLUS home features include:

  • Mold and Moisture Control
  • Radon Control
  • Combustion Pollutant Control
  • Pest Barriers
  • Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning
  • Building Materials

At Fulton Homes we are committed to creating better environments both inside and out. We are proud to offer new homes that have earned both the Indoor airPLUS and ENERGY STAR Certified Home labels because it means your home has been designed and built to standards well above most other homes on the market today.

Fulton Homes’ is committed to Building 100% Energy Star Certified Homes

energy_star_photosFulton 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.
