One Big Secret to Energy Cost Savings

by Shea Homes Arizona on April 17, 2015

As a family homebuilder, we strive to be a leader in innovation, customer care and overall, in enhancing lives so that families can wake up and start their days in a safe, comfortable living environment. We were so honored to be recognized as the 2015 ENERGY STAR® Certified Homes Market Leader Award. We are so proud of the partnerships we cultivate and nurture, and so proud of the Shea Homes Arizona team for working so hard to make these 534 energy-efficient homes happen.


Not sure what ENERGY STAR® means? It’s one of the most important partnerships we have here at Shea Homes, and we’ll explain why:

Ever wonder what the big secret to saving on your energy bill is? Start from the beginning. Building from the ground up, gives you the opportunity to invest in an ENERGY STAR® certified home at Shea Homes.

ENERGY STAR certified new homes offer better energy efficiency and performance compared to other homes, making them a better value for today and a better investment for tomorrow.

Did you know that Shea Homes, which carry the ENERGY STAR label use 20-30 percent less energy than typical new homes, and even more when compared to most resale homes on the market today. That means 20-30 percent of your current bill could be going to something else!

Together, families who purchased homes earning the ENERGY STAR label save more than $350 million each year on their utility bills.

Purchasing a new home is a big investment, so it’s important to know that your home is built to last. ENERGY STAR certified homes are designed and built to include value-adding energy efficiency features and a combination of materials and equipment that deliver better performance.

ENERGY STAR Certified Homes are built with:

Many of these features are behind walls, in the attic, and under the foundation. But these hidden details have an impact on the experience of living in an ENERGY STAR certified home. The decision to buy an ENERGY STAR certified new home is a decision to invest in a home you can count on.

But don’t take our word for it! Hear from real homeowners why ENERGY STAR certified homes are better!
