Building energy efficient electric homes

To meet growing consumer demand for energy efficiency, more and more residential contractors are building all-electric. It not only satisfies homebuyers, it has all kinds of advantages for the builder.

  • Flexible installation. All-electric means you have total flexibility in locating major appliances, heating and air systems and water heaters without worrying about pipe placement.
  • Less time and effort. You can completely bypass the time-consuming steps of installing gas piping and flues, hooking up gas and checking for proper installation and venting.
  • Simple inspection. Without piping and flues to inspect, it takes less time for building inspectors to pass your homes for sale.
  • Fast to market. The time you save means you can have each home completed and sold faster — for a faster return on your investment.
  • Easy sale. Homebuyers are alarmed by today's volatile energy prices. An all-electric home assures them of lower annual energy costs and more stable monthly bills.
