Energy Savings

Championing Change

One of the first ENERGY STAR NextGen™ Builders in the U.S.

New Tradition Homes proudly leads the industry as one of the first builders in the U.S. to achieve ENERGY STAR NextGen™ Certification. This groundbreaking program takes our energy efficiency to new heights, ensuring that your home is not just a house but a beacon of innovation.

Built For A Clean Energy Future

The ENERGY STAR NextGen™ Difference

ENERGY STAR NextGen™ certification is an additional, optional level of recognition for homes that incorporates leading-edge efficient electric technologies and electric vehicle charging capabilities to maximize energy and emissions savings — while delivering the comfort, quality, and durability that homeowners expect from ENERGY STAR.

1. Pump Up The Comfort

Multi-speed ENERGY STAR certified heat pumps are more efficient than furnaces or boilers. Heat pumps serve double duty with heating and cooling, making them usable year-round.

2. Cooking Up Cleaner Air

Electric cooktops and ovens eliminate the emissions of indoor air pollutants associated with gas combustion, including carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide, and contribute to a healthier indoor living environment.

3. Hot Savings, Cool Tech

ENERGY STAR NextGen-certified homes include an ENERGY STAR-certified heat pump water heater, which is up to four times more efficient and uses 70% less energy than a standard model.

4. Highly Efficient

With ENERGY STAR NextGen™, your home is not just efficient; it’s a haven for a healthier life. Experience homes that are at least 10% more energy-efficient than standard codes, providing you with unmatched indoor comfort and protection.

5. Ready For The Future

Prepare for the future of transportation with electric vehicle charging capability. Every ENERGY STAR NextGen™ certified home comes wired and ready for an ENERGY STAR certified EV charger.

6. Sustainability Redefined

Building a more efficient home reduces your water, energy and carbon footprints. By reducing your energy and water use, you conserve resources and have less of an impact on the climate and the environment.

Third-Party Tested For Excellence

New Tradition Homes, designated an Energy Smart Builder by RESNET®, ensures each home undergoes third-party energy rating, resulting in a HERS (Home Energy Rating System) score for every customer. This score provides a quick insight into a home’s energy efficiency, empowering buyers to make informed decisions. Think of the HERS Score as your home’s MPG rating—lower scores mean higher energy efficiency, leading to enhanced comfort, reduced utility costs, and a greener living space.
