When we evaluated the program, we discovered that PMC was already meeting most of the Energy Star guidelines
Tulsa, Okla. (PRWEB) April 26, 2007 - PMC Homes, a local home-
building company, has raised the bar for Greater Tulsa homes. As the only Tulsa builder committed to Energy Star standards in every home they build, PMC Homes is committed to improving the community and the environment.
PMC Homes began building their Greater Tulsa homes to EPA Energy Star standards in November of 2006. Since then, they have committed themselves to protecting the environment while helping Tulsa homeowners save money with energy-efficient products and practices.
Thanks to the efforts of companies like PMC Homes, Energy Star households across the country saved $12 billion in utility costs in 2005 and decreased greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to the emissions from twenty-three million cars.
While the energy savings and environmental impact are impressive, altering construction practices to concur with Energy Star standards does not require dramatic sacrifices for homeowners. The costs of energy efficient appliances and construction pay for themselves within the first few years of living in an Energy Star home.
PMC Homes had been incorporating good energy practices into their work without even realizing it. "When we evaluated the program, we discovered that PMC was already meeting most of the Energy Star guidelines," said Shawn Linfoot, marketing director for PMC Homes. "It just made sense to go ahead and adopt these principles one-hundred percent."
Energy Star home builders:
- Install energy efficient, non-polluting lighting, appliances and HVAC systems
- Use tight construction, effective insulation and high performance windows
- Recycle, reuse and maintain construction materials to reduce waste
In addition to preserving the environment outside the home, the high standards required by Energy Star homes contribute to safer, more comfortable living environments for residents as well. Efficient, modern appliances and improved indoor air quality are just a few of the benefits Energy Star homeowners can expect.
The builders at PMC Homes are not alone in their quest for energy conservation through better building. As of today, thousands of homebuilders have joined with the EPA to construct over 500,000 Energy Star qualified homes, offering viable solutions to protect resources and reduce pollution for the next generation.
