Efficiency Vermont Certified™ Homes

Most people think a brand new house is energy efficient by design. But not all new homes are created equal. Factors like the type of insulation and ventilation used, as well as appliance and heating system choices, can make a significant difference in a new home’s long-term durability and energy savings.

Efficiency Vermont Certified homes feature advanced insulation and ventilation, high-performance windows, efficient heating and cooling systems, low-flow bathroom fixtures, and ENERGY STAR® certified lighting and appliances. The result is better air quality, increased comfort, lower energy bills, and a home that can yield a higher resale value.

Choose from either our Efficiency Vermont Certified Base or High Performance levels. View a complete list of specifications and incentives.

  • Unlimited guidance and technical support from a dedicated energy consultant
  • Reduced drafts, improved air quality and comfort, and lower energy bills
  • Cash-back incentives of up to $3,000 upon completion
