Efficiency, Comfort, & Sustainability

Focus on Energy

Focus on Energy homes are energy efficient, durable, and comfortable.

They have improved air quality, minimal drafts, combustion safety, and whole-house ventilation. You'll enjoy the many benefits of an energy efficient home, including lower energy bills. Plus, the Focus on Energy certification may certainly increase the overall value of your home.

Focus on Energy builders and energy experts construct new homes that are 25-100 percent more efficient than homes built to today's Wisconsin state codes.
