Designed Homes... Custom Additions... Light Commercial...
Benefits of choosing to build an energy Effecient home include:

A label backed by the government
All homes are certified to meet EPA's strict guidelines for energy efficiency. This exemplary performance is verified by an independent third party.

Lower Utility Costs
Use substantially less energy for heating, cooling, and hot water heating. Homeowners can expect to save about $200–$400 annually on their utility bills. Now if you live in your home for an average of 7 to 8 years... Well, you can see how that adds up.

More Comfortable and Quieter 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
You are joining millions of consumers who have changed to Energy Star or Touchstone Energy, helping our nation reduce our energy needs and building a cleaner environment for the future.


At Scheibler Design-Build, we are proud to offer new homes that have earned the Energy Star® and the Touchstone Energy Home Label. These new homes are substantially more energy efficient than homes built to the minimum code requirements. Our Energy Star and Touchstone Energy qualified new homes are independently verified by a third-party Home Energy Rater to ensure they meet energy efficiency guidelines. These homes are better for the environment and better for you.

Some Features of our Energy Star Qualified homes:

Site Design - We begin with a thorough review of the building site, emphasizing proper orientation of the structures based on access, topography, trees, rock outcroppings, view corridors, solar gain, and preservation of natural surroundings.

Effective Insulation — Properly installed insulation in the walls, ceiling, and air ducts 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 exterior perforations, cracks, and seams in ducts and construction assemblies helps eliminate drafts, moisture, dust, pests, and pollen to create a comprehensive air barrier. This improves comfort and the 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, which reduces utility bills. These systems also turn on and off less frequently, removing more humidity and providing better comfort.

Homebuyer Incentives
Because ENERGY STAR qualified new homes offer significant utility bill savings each and every month, ownership gives you access to special financing opportunities such as Energy Efficient Mortgages. These special mortgages make it easier for borrowers to qualify to purchase homes with specific energy-efficiency improvements. Contact an Energy Star lender to learn more about how buying an Energy Star qualified new home can truly pay significant dividends. Learn more about EEM here at the HUD website and here at the Touchstone Energy website.

As a home buyer you can also reap the benefits from special utility promotions designed to encourage homeowners to reduce their energy consumption through energy efficiency. These promotions often include product rebates on home products that bear the Energy Star label, reimbursement for the cost of having your home energy rated by a certified home energy rater, as well as other energy efficiency perks depending on the structure of the utility's Energy Star program. The bottom line is that by installing energy efficient features in your new home such as a high SEER heating and cooling unit, low-e windows, and improved insulation, you can save money on your monthly utility bills, live in a more comfortable home, and help keep energy demand down.
