In order to earn the ENERGY STAR qualification, field verification including an onsite inspection and a test by a Home Energy Rater is required. Muskegon Habitat is pleased to say that their Habitat homes have exceeded the standards required to qualify for certification. A home designed with energy efficiency in mind helps ensure that new homeowners will be more comfortable, have lower utility bills and promotes environmental stewardship.

Muskegon, MI, August 9, 2017 – Muskegon County Habitat for Humanity, a nonprofit housing development organization serving Muskegon County since 1985, has announced that their constructed home at 2355 Lincoln Street in Muskegon has received a 48 on the Home Energy Rating System (HERS) index.

Our ENERGY STAR qualified homes orchestrated by our builder Mike McIntyre, include tight construction and duct systems, properly installed insulation, high performance windows, efficient heating and cooling equipment and ENERGY STAR appliances.”
