The Natural Choice - Building Greener Than You Think

Enhance customer satisfaction and increase your potential revenue with an ENERGY STAR® home.

As part of the Arizona ENERGY STAR Home Program, Southwest Gas will support homebuilders' participation in ENERGY STAR qualification by assisting with the cost of testing and inspection of new homes through rebates.

Homebuyers repeatedly agree that an important part of selecting a builder was locating an ENERGY STAR certified builder. An ENERGY STAR home guarantees that a new home is significantly more energy-efficient than a standard home. Homebuyers are routinely seeking homes with proven energy savings that also help the environment through reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. An ENERGY STAR home meets these needs with energy-efficient heating and cooling equipment, high-performance windows, effective insulation and tight construction and ducts.

ENERGY STAR homes are:

  • Smarter through superior construction, high-efficient heating, cooling and water heating systems, along with choices for other natural gas appliances.
  • Greener as it helps preserve the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and helps reduce energy costs.
  • Better as an ENERGY STAR home provides all the features and amenities a new home owner is looking for as they increase their environmental awareness and are looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint.
