Tuesday, August 23, 2011 / Mattamy Homes

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. --- Mattamy Homes U.S. Group, a division of Canada’s largest home builder, has qualified to earn the coveted Energy Star® rating for all new homes it builds in 11 communities in Northeast Florida, including Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra and St. Augustine.

Jerry Dean, vice president of construction Mattamy Homes Jacksonville, said Mattamy Energy Star® homes are rigorously engineered and built to exacting standards to meet or exceed the Energy Star® requirements.

Dean said Mattamy Energy Star® homes will save home buyers $200 to $400 annually in energy costs, depending on the size of the home.

“Our Energy Star® homes will dramatically reduce energy costs and provide a safer, cleaner, more valuable home in the short term and in the long term,” Dean said.

To achieve Energy Star®, Mattamy includes: R-38 insulation in ceilings and R-15 insulation in walls, properly installed to help provide even temperatures; qualified air- conditioners that run quieter, provide better humidity control; programmable thermostats to help save energy costs and consumption; double paned Low-E coated windows that help keep heat in during the winter and cold air in the summer as well as blocking damaging ultraviolet rays that discolor carpets, drapes and furnishings.

Tight Energy Star® approved construction is always required so homes are sealed with caulks, foams, weather stripping, gaskets and door sweeps and Energy Star® approved ducts that are properly sized, sealed and insulated for peak heat and cooling efficiency.

Mattamy Homes builds new single family and townhomes priced from the mid-$100s in the Jacksonville region.
