E3® (Eagle Energy Efficiency) is a green building certification program designed to create healthy, energy efficient and comfortable homes that conserve natural resources during construction and help protect the environment.
The E3 program combines energy savings with green building technology. We concentrate on sealing the construction envelope around each home, maximizing the energy efficiency of each home's heating, ventilation and air conditioning system. By focusing on these key construction areas, we are able to place the same diligent attention on delivering E3 certified homes at a low cost, while creating a tremendous value for the homeowner.
To ensure the highest level of quality and efficiency, we build above the "green" standard by testing and certifying every single home under the E3 program. Other green building programs only test and certify 1 in 7 homes they build. Not only do we test every home, but each home undergoes at least 3 different tests at various construction stages to ensure your home is well above government standards to provide you with enhanced comfort, lower utility bills and better indoor air quality.
Contain specific, program defined features.
Earn a standard level of points by selecting items from a menu of green materials and best practices to include in the home.
Pass a series of third party inspections, a "blower door" test and a "duct blaster" test.
Low - E windows are coated with a nearly invisible metal or metallic oxide layer that helps suppress the transfer or radiative heat flow, keeping the outdoor climate where it belongs - outside!
We use only efficient, ENERGY STAR® rated equipment for our homes and customize the combination of energy producing equipment to maximize our homes' energy potential and efficiency. Ductwork is sealed with mastic tape
