BRUNSWICK PLANTATION PROUDLY PARTICIPATES
IN BUILDING ENERGY STAR HOMES
WHAT IS – ENERGY STAR?
ENERGY STAR was started by the US Environmental Protection Agency in 1992 as a market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency. Today, the ENERGY STAR label can be found on more than 60 different kinds of products as well as new homes that meet energy efficiency specifications set by EPA. In 2011 alone, Americans, with the help of ENERGY STAR, saved more than $23 billion on their utility bills, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to the annual emissions from 41 million vehicles.

Here at Brunswick Plantation The Townhomes of Smithfield II and The Lakes Condominiums are built to ENERGY STAR specifications. This means they contain outstanding insulation and high performance windows to lower your utility bills. They have a high efficiency heating, ventilating, and cooling system designed and installed for optimal performance.
Energy efficient lighting and appliances help keep utility bills low, while providing high quality performance and longevity.
From the moment you walk in the door of your ENERGY STAR certified new home, you’ll see, feel, and hear the difference. You’ll find that air leaks and drafts are diminished, humidity levels are controlled, and even outside noise is reduced.
You don’t need to understand all the details of the building science and energy efficient features that went into the construction of your ENERGY STAR certified new home. But once you move in, you’ll be glad your builder did.
ENERGY STAR homes are proven value, a better investment for today and tomorrow.
