Anatomy of an ENERGY STAR home: saving money, helping the planet & increased comfort

Anatomy of an ENERGY STAR HOME


Ever wonder what makes an ENERGY STAR home more efficient? 

Efficiency translates into lower cost to heat and cool plus a special discount rate from Progress Energy.

Here's a great opportunity to see inside the walls of an ENERGY STAR home under construction. We'll meet at an easy to find location in Raleigh for a guided tour and discussion about energy efficiency.

We'll start early at 5pm for early birds and run a second tour starting at 5:30-pm and finish up at 6:30ish...dusk.

TESTING:  Special treat - duct blaster or door blower test courtesy of Southern Energy Management

LOCATION: Oaks of Fallon Park in Raleigh (Five Points area)

                   Lot #12 - 527 Guilford Cirlce - home under construction - Dixon Kirby Builders

                   Lot #13 - 531 Guilford Cirlce - completed home - Legacy Construction

TIME: 5-6:30

REFRESHMENTS:  light snacks and drinks
