Beazer Homes is excited to announce our latest achievement—we’ve received the 2017 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year-Sustained Excellence Award! Each year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) honors businesses and organizations that have made outstanding contributions to protecting the environment through superior energy efficiency achievements. Beazer is being recognized for our sustained excellence with contributions to reducing greenhouse gas emissions through building ENERGY STAR certified new homes.
With operations in 13 states, Beazer Homes has been part of the ENERGY STAR® program since 1998. A few of our key accomplishments toward energy efficiency include:
- Building more than 5,200 ENERGY STAR certified homes in 2016, for a total of more than 48,000 ENERGY STAR certified homes since joining the program.
- Beginning a two-year ventilation study to improve indoor air quality in humid climates, while focusing all energy efficiency initiatives on staying ahead of emerging energy codes and reducing consumers’ energy costs. Beazer Homes are currently about 15%-30% percent more efficient than code-built homes.
- Providing more than 5,000 annual post-closing homeowner training sessions and training 200 in-house sales staff, as well as outside real estate agents, on the benefits of ENERGY STAR certified homes.
- Beazer goes the extra mile to ensure homes will perform as expected by building to some of the strictest energy conservation standards and testing every home through a third party rater.
