St. Louis home construction company Hibbs Homes is a high performance green home builder and Energy Star partner. Hibbs Homes offers Energy Star products and materials for energy efficient homes in St. Louis city, St. Louis county, St. Charles County and beyond.

Energy Star rated homes use 15-20% less energy than typical homes, without sacrificing any comfort. That decreased energy usage will save you thousands of dollars on your energy bills during the years that you spend in your home. Here at Hibbs Homes we use several different tactics to ensure that homes are running at max efficiency. Your new home will have high-performance insulation and proper air sealing measures that will ensure that your conditioned air (cool air in the summer and warm air in the winter) stays in your home instead of escaping through the walls and roof. High performance windows will also help you avoid chills in the winter and hot spots in the summer. Energy star rated HVAC systems use less energy to provide the same level of comfort as their less energy efficient counterparts.

As trusted green home builders, we can help you get started with a green home on a smaller scale as well. While energy efficiency measures such as proper insulation and air sealing will have a huge impact on both your comfort and energy bill savings, you can also start saving money by switching to Energy Star rated products. Swapping out your older model large appliances such as refrigerators, washing machines, dryers, and dishwashers for Energy Star rated versions will significantly decrease your overall energy usage. Hibbs Homes can also recommend great Energy Star rated options for everything from electronics to energy efficient lighting options.
