Halcottsville, NY (PRWEB) November 17, 2004
You must be familiar with seeing Energy StarÂ® ratings on appliances you purchase, but would you think of looking for it when you purchase a home? How about if itÂs a log home you are buying?
While it is becoming common to find the Energy StarÂ® rating on many new homes, only one solid log home company, Alta Log Homes of Halcottsville, NY, has been awarded the Energy StarÂ® rating - the most trusted national symbol for energy efficiency in the new home industry. Energy StarÂ® qualified homes are independently verified to be at least 30% more energy efficient than homes built to the 1993 national Model Energy Code or 15% more efficient than state energy code, whichever is more rigorous. This translates into guaranteed energy savings for the consumer.
Energy StarÂ® is a government-backed program helping businesses and individuals protect the environment through superior energy efficiency. Energy StarÂ® qualified new homes achieve their energy savings through a variety of reliable and established technologies and building practices. However, the Energy StarÂ® label means more than an energy efficiency certification; itÂs a partnership among government organizations, businesses, and consumers alike, united in the pursuit of one common goal Â to protect our environment for future generations.
ÂItÂs great to see a member company take their business to a new level,Â says Dave Kaufman, Executive Director of the Log Home/Building Systems Council, Âthey are demonstrating that their product means more to them than just sales.Â
With this Energy StarÂ® rating, Alta Log Homes, a leader in the log home industry since 1971, has joined the ranks of more than 2,400 builders, manufacturers, and retailers throughout the United States dedicated to helping reduce pollution by building more energy efficient homes.
David Mann, President of Alta Log Homes says, ÂItÂs an honor to be the first company in our industry to get this rating. It shows our customers how energy efficient our homes really are, which in turn saves them a great deal of money in heating and cooling costs.Â
