Energy Star Homes

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the ENERGY STAR label is the trusted national symbol for energy efficiency in the new home industry. By building and promoting ENERGY STAR qualified new homes, ENERGY STAR partners play a valuable role in preventing pollution and protecting our environment.

A group of Houston area homebuilders have partnered with EPA and the ENERGY STAR program to construct and deliver energy-efficient homes to local homebuyers. According to EPA, an ENERGY STAR qualified home uses less energy for heating, cooling, and water heating than a home built to the Texas residential building code. This can help homeowners reduce their energy use. These homes have energy-efficient features that can help homeowners use less energy for the supply of heating, cooling and hot water. These homes earn the ENERGY STAR label after an independent Home Energy Rating Service (HERS) provider completes a verification process of the home's energy use.

ENERGY STAR for homes is a government program administered by the Department of Energy (DOE) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). CenterPoint Energy does not warrant construction, rating, or inspection of any ENERGY STAR home.

CenterPoint Energy is not a party to the agreement between builders and homeowners, and the builder is solely responsible for the performance of the work and contract fulfillment.
