Keeping in line with current trends, company emphasizes energy efficiency in its homes

We wholly support the notion of greener living, and we’ve kept pace with current trends by offering the features and products our customers have told us they want in a new home.

Clayton Homes, America’s largest homebuilder*, is staying on top of the current housing trends by offering several energy-efficient, ENERGY STAR® features in its homes.

As energy efficiency has become a top priority for prospective homebuyers, Clayton Homes has made strides to deliver consumers the money-saving features they desire in a new home by offering many ENERGY STAR® certified options.

“Whether they want to lower their utility bill or decrease their carbon footprint, consumers are more energy conscience than ever, and our ENERGY STAR® home sales reflect that,” Kevin Clayton, CEO of Clayton Homes, said. “We wholly support the notion of greener living, and we’ve kept pace with current trends by offering the features and products our customers have told us they want in a new home.”

Clayton Homes’ focus on green features starts with the construction process. The company’s manufacturing process emphasizes efficiency that places a large importance on minimizing waste—both in materials and time. In fact, the waste from the construction of a typical Clayton Home can fit into two 30-gallon drums. Consumers who are looking to lower their utility bills can choose to add several features to their home that will help them cut down on energy costs, such as:

  •     Low-emissivity (Low-E) windows that help regulate indoor temperature by retaining heat in the winter and keeping it out during the warmer months.
  •     Extra insulation that exceeds national code requirements to make heating and cooling the home more affordable.
  •     Smart lighting alternatives, such as CFL light bulbs that consume less electricity than traditional bulbs.
  •     Advanced heating and cooling features, such as heat pumps, that use less power to control the home’s climate.

“We incorporate several different materials and products into our homes that can save homebuyers money when the monthly utility bill comes in,” Clayton said. “We are constantly looking for ways to help our customers save money, including after they’ve bought one of our homes.”
