Benefits of an ENERGY STAR or NEEM certified Manufactured Home
Lower Utility Bills
By using less energy for heating, cooling, and water heating, ENERGY STAR certified homes deliver approximately 20% savings on annual utility bills. Over the 7 to 8 years that a typical family lives in a home, you can save thousands of dollars in maintenance cost.
In ENERGY STAR certified homes, comfort is ensured with consistent temperatures between and across rooms; indoor air quality is enhanced by reducing dust, pollen, bugs, and excessive humidity; and durability is improved with comprehensive water protection, windows that block damaging sunlight, and better grade equipment.
The energy used in our homes often comes from the burning of fossil fuels at power plants. So, by using less energy to operate, ENERGY STAR certified homes help to prevent air pollution—an added benefit for today’s environmentally-conscious consumer looking for “green” choices.

Less Expensive to Run
An ENERGY STAR certified manufactured home uses substantially less energy for heating, cooling and water heating than a standard manufactured home. Homeowners can expect to save hundreds of dollars each year on utility bills.
Properly installed energy-efficient improvements, such as increased insulation, tightly sealed air ducts and ENERGY STAR certified windows, provide better protection against heat, cold, drafts, and noise.
Appraisers and lenders recognize the value of ENERGY STAR certified homes at the time of home sale.
Good for the Environment
The energy used in your home is most often generated from the burning of fossil fuels by power plants, which contributes to smog, acid rain and greenhouse gas emissions. So the less energy we use at home, the less air pollution we generate. This creates a better environment for everyone, now and for generations to come.
Every ENERGY STAR certified manufactured home receives a blue ENERGY STAR label, usually on the home’s electrical panel or next to its HUD data plate.
