Fulton Homes Commitment to Energy Efficient
Features Continues to Lead the Market

Eco-friendly homes are at the top of homebuyer wish lists

Energy Efficient Homes


Fulton homebuyers don't have to pay extra for energy and water saving efficiency, or clean air because it comes standard with every home they build. All of the homes they build are certified by ENERGY STAR®, Indoor airPLUS, or WaterSense.

"Since we became an Energy Star Builder in 2009, Fulton Homes' participation in the ENERGY STAR program has helped incorporate industry-leading innovation and reduced utility bills while bettering the environment," said Vice President of Operations Dennis Webb.

According to a 2020 report from the National Association of Realtors, buyers who purchased between July 2019 and June 2020 found that environmentally friendly features were important to them.

Out of the same survey of about 8,200 buyers, more than four in five buyers said heating and cooling costs were the most important environmental factors, along with energy-efficient windows, doors and siding, followed by lighting and appliances.

Fulton Homes has won the following awards from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in all three ‘Partner of the Year’ categories:
  • Seven-time Indoor airPLUS Leader Award winner, two-time Indoor airPLUS Leader of the Year
  • Seven-time ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year winner – Sustained Excellence Award
  • WaterSense Builder Partner of the Year 2020, 2021
To be certified as ENERGY STAR, a builder must meet strict energy performance standards set by the EPA. Per the government agency, ENERGY STAR certified homes are 10% more energy efficient than homes built to code and reach a 20% improvement on average while providing individual homeowners with better quality, performance, and comfort.

The benefits of being an Indoor airPLUS home include protection from potential exposure to combustion pollutants, moisture control, radon control, pest management, and higher efficiency for heating, ventilation and air conditioning. As a WaterSense partner, since 2006, Fulton Homes has contributed to saving 5.3 trillion gallons of water and $108 billion on consumer utility bills.
