Energy Star New Homes

Many people overlook the cost of heating and cooling their home when comparing their different options. In the real-world example above, a typical used home would need to be $26,000 cheaper in order make up for the increased energy usage. And this assumes that energy costs won't go up in the future. If home is expensive to heat and cool today, what will it be like in 10 or 15 years?

A new, high-performance home by Maplewood Homes can easily cut your heating and cooling costs in half when compared to a used home. Through carefully sealing of the home, installing more insulation, and providing high performance mechanical systems we offer our homeowners a way to invest in a better home on the same budget.

Many builders were surprised and confused by the recent building code changes mandating higher energy efficiency. We've been doing it for years!
