Over the last year, Hubble Homes has committed to building 100% ENERGY STAR homes. We are proud to announce that we have built over 1,100 ENERGY STAR homes in the Valley.

Our homes have earned the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ENERGY STAR certification. ENERGY STAR certified homes are at least 10% more energy-efficient than homes built to code and achieve a 20% improvement on average with better air quality, performance, and comfort.

"Hubble is pleased to offer all of our home buyers more efficient, durable, and comfortable homes with ENERGY STAR certification," said CEO Don Hubble. "Through our ENERGY STAR participation, we are demonstrating our commitment to energy-efficient construction."

“We see the 100% ENERGY STAR commitment as the real mark of leadership among American home builders,” said Jonathan Passe, Chief of the ENERGY STAR Residential Branch. “It is a commitment to excellence in terms of lower utility bills, greater home comfort, and environmental protection." 

Homes earning the ENERGY STAR label are designed and built to standards well above most other homes on the market today. When ENERGY STAR rigorous requirements are applied to new home construction, the result is a home built better from the ground up, delivering better durability, better comfort, and reduced utility and maintenance costs.

Features of an ENERGY STAR certified home include:

  • A Complete Thermal Enclosure System — Comprehensive air sealing, properly installed insulation, and high-performance windows work together to enhance comfort, improve durability, reduce maintenance costs, and lower monthly utility bills.
  • A Complete Heating and Cooling System — High-efficiency systems that are engineered and installed to deliver more comfort, better moisture control, improved indoor air quality, and quieter operation.
  • A Complete Water Management System — A comprehensive package of best building practices and materials protects roofs, walls, and foundations from water damage provides added protection, and reduces the risk of indoor air quality problems.
  • Energy-Efficient Lighting and Appliances — ENERGY STAR qualified lighting, appliances, and fans are commonly installed throughout ENERGY STAR certified homes, helping to reduce monthly utility bills, while providing high-quality performance.
