What an Energy Efficient Home Means for You

Gorgeous design, luxury lifestyle, sophisticated finishes – all wrapped up in an energy-saving, efficiently-powered, sustainable new home. Who says you can’t have it all? At EG Home, our homes are designed and built to standards far above most other new houses on the market. They meet strict energy efficiency requirements that translate to cost savings for you, a smaller carbon footprint for the environment, and a superior quality of life that you and your family will enjoy for years to come.


Lower Energy Bills

When you own an EG home, you can be confident knowing you made a smart decision for today and tomorrow. An EG home uses 20 to 30% less energy than typical new homes, and even less when compared to most resale homes. You can save thousands of dollars in utility bills over your years of home ownership. 


Optimal Performance

Our homes perform better because we use ENERGY STAR® certified systems and products to reduce waste and increase efficiency. Many of these important features are out of sight — behind walls, in the attic, and under the foundation — but these hidden details can have a huge impact on your living experience. All EG homes include:

An air sealed thermal enclosure, to minimize air leaks through the outer walls, windows, doors, and other openings, which eliminates drafts and keeps utility bills low.  

A high-efficiency heating, ventilating, and cooling system that is designed and installed for optimal performance and superior comfort, meaning you’ll always have a constant supply of fresh air at the perfect temperature.

A comprehensive water management system to reduce the potential for water damage and improve the durability of the foundation, which means less maintenance to worry about in the future.

Energy-efficient lighting and appliances to help keep utility bills low, while providing high-quality performance, longevity, and beautiful design. 


Comfort & Peace of Mind

From the moment you walk in the door of your new EG Home, you’ll see, feel, and hear the difference. Temperatures are comfortable and consistent room-to-room, the air is fresh and allergen-free, and the space is quiet and peaceful. Your entire living space is comfortable year-round, wherever you are in the home.

The combination of innovative building science and tried-and-true best building practices, along with a whole-house approach to design and construction, adds up to a home with better durability, better comfort, and reduced utility and maintenance costs. You’ll rest easy knowing that your home has been designed to be an ENERGY STAR® Certified Home and has undergone significant inspections and testing. 


An EG home is built to reduce energy waste, lower your monthly expenses, last for generations, and most importantly, provide unrivaled comfort and quality of life for you and your family. To learn more about our energy efficient new homes in Connecticut, please contact us at 203-714-6622.
