Energy Star Program

As a longstanding partner in the New York ENERGY STAR labeled Homes program, Stewart Construction has the opportunity to offer our clients a way to verify the energy savings they can expect to receive from their new home.

The Energy Star Program was started in 1992 by the federal Environmental Protection Agency as a way to promote the use of energy efficient products and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In New York it is administered by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) and is called New York Energy Smart.

New York ENERGY STAR labeled Homes employ proven technologies and advanced building practices to use approximately 30% less energy than conventionally built homes. These practices include comprehensive air sealing, high-density insulation, duct sealing, high-performance windows and doors, high-efficiency heating and cooling systems, mechanical ventilation systems, and energy-saving appliances and lighting.

At Stewart Construction, our building practices have always included a comprehensive system of insulation, air sealing and ventilation. Through the New York ENERGY STAR labeled Homes program, we are excited to be able to provide our new homeowners the option of having their home tested and certified to meet the high standards of an ENERGY STAR labeled home.
