The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) established the ENERGY STAR program in 1992 with the aim to reduce air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. The program is still going strong today with a focus on decreasing energy consumption to improve the environment. The EPA also established a standardized and trusted rating system in order to give consumers peace of mind when purchasing a home. Columbia Builders is a 100% ENERGY STAR partner, and we are committed to going beyond the requirements of the EPA. Our custom homes are carefully designed to consistently surpass the EPA’s guidelines for energy efficiency. Every home is tested to ensure that your experience is more comfortable, the building is more durable, and your energy bills are lower. Once all testing is complete, a performance score (known as a Home Energy Rating System index, or HERS index for short) is assigned to the home. Lower scores indicate a higher level of energy efficiency. The HERS indices of the homes that we build here at Columbia Builders consistently score better than the national average and continue to outpace EPA code standards.
A new home has many components that must complement each other and work together to achieve a high level of energy efficiency. Lower costs and a healthier environment are the goals of the ENERGY STAR program, but a custom home builder also needs to utilize quality materials, skilled craftsmen, and innovative construction as the means to superior results. Columbia Builders achieves all of these goals to provide homeowners with excellent quality, great energy efficiency, and lower energy usage and costs.
We have earned our reputation for quality and energy efficiency through hard work and excellent customer care. Columbia Builders has been voted “Howard County’s Best Home Builder” by the readers of Howard Magazine for 24 years. The National Association of Home Builders and Dow Chemical have bestowed numerous national awards on our team in the field of energy efficiency, and BGE recently awarded us “2016 Energy Efficient Champion”. In addition, we have been consistently recognized by the Home Builders Association of Maryland for our excellence.
Columbia Builders provides a wide range of features and benefits that go above and beyond what other luxury home builders can provide. Consider what we can offer to your custom home buying experience:
- Customization options for your home that ensure your new home will suit your budget, needs, and lifestyle.

And we keep the lines of communication open – throughout every step of the home building process. We begin with a field review of the home site, followed by a preconstruction review, a pre-drywall inspection at your new home, and a home completion orientation before move-in day. If you ever need to get in touch with our team for any reason at all, we welcome you to contact us at any time through phone or email. You are also always welcome at our sales office with any questions you may have.
