ENERGY STAR Qualified Custom Homes

MorningStar Homes is proud to offer new homes that have earned the ENERGY STAR® label. ENERGY STAR qualified new homes are substantially more energy efficient than homes built to the minimum code requirements. Our ENERGY STAR qualified new homes are independently verified by a third-party Home Energy Rater to ensure they meet ENERGY STAR energy efficiency guidelines. These homes are better for the environment and better for you.


Benefits of owning one of our ENERGY STAR qualified new homes include:

  • > A label backed by the government

All ENERGY STAR qualified new homes are certified to meet the EPA's strict guidelines for energy efficiency. This exemplary performance is verified by an independent third party.

  • > Lower utility costs

Compared with standard homes, ENERGY STAR qualified new homes use substantially less energy for heating, cooling and hot water heating.

  • > Quieter, more comfortable homes

The energy-efficient features of ENERGY STAR qualified new homes keep out excessive heat, cold and noise, and ensure consistent temperatures between and across rooms, making these homes more comfortable to live in.

  • > Helping to create a better future

By purchasing an ENERGY STAR qualified new home, you are joining millions of consumers who have changed to ENERGY STAR, helping our nation reduce our energy needs and building a cleaner environment for the future.

Features of our ENERGY STAR qualified new homes include:

  • > Effective insulation

Properly installed insulation that meets or exceeds national code requirements helps achieve even temperatures throughout the house while using less energy. The result is lower utility costs and a quieter, more comfortable home.

  • > High-performance windows

Advanced window coatings help keep heat in during winter and out during summer. They also block damaging ultraviolet sunlight that can discolor carpets and furniture.

  • > Tight construction and tight ducts

Attention to detail by sealing all holes, cracks and seams in ducts and construction assemblies helps eliminate drafts, moisture, dust, pests and pollen. This improves the comfort and quality of indoor air, while lowering maintenance costs.

  • > Energy-efficient heating and cooling equipment

More efficient and properly sized heating and cooling systems use less energy, reducing utility bills. These systems also turn on and off less frequently, removing more humidity and providing better comfort.
