Energy Star Explained

In 1992, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) established the ENERGY STAR program to reduce air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Today, the program is going strong with the focus on improving the environment and decreasing energy consumption and costs. Consumers have peace of mind knowing they are purchasing a home tested with a trusted rating system.

As a 100% ENERGY STAR Partner, Columbia Builders is committed to going above and beyond the EPA’s requirements to design energy-efficient homes, consistently surpassing the EPAs up to date guidelines. We test every home we build to ensure that you experience greater comfort and durability, all the while lowering your utility costs.

With the use of quality materials, skilled craftsmen, and innovative construction, Columbia Builders achieves superior results – providing our homeowners with enduring quality, outstanding energy efficiency and lower utility costs.
