The energy used by homes in the U.S. accounts for 20% of total U.S. carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Northwest ENERGY STAR Homes perform better than standard code-built homes and require less energy for heating, cooling and hot water. This amounts to reduced air pollution and a healthier environment for everyone.
Northwest ENERGY STAR Homes have healthier indoor air, as performance-tested ductwork keeps the air inside your home clean by reducing the possibility of drawing unwanted air from your home’s attic, basement, crawl spaces and garage.
