Capstone Custom Homes - Energy Efficiency

With winter energy bills and hot summers a top-of-mind concern for many homeowners, having ways to reduce energy costs is understandably a key priority. That’s why Capstone has several energy-saving items included in each of our home builds.

Capstone Signature Windows

Our Capstone Signature Windows are triple-pane vinyl windows with a double low-e coating and argon gas insulation. This makes the windows extremely efficient, greatly reducing heat absorption. In fact, these windows are so effective that they were named Energy Star Most Efficient in 2017.

High-Efficiency Furnace and Air Conditioner

Furnaces and air conditioners are major energy users in the home. We offer high efficiency appliances, meaning you will enjoy lower energy costs. Less energy will be wasted during heating or cooling, making it easier to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. We install higher-rated HVAC systems than other builders so you can start saving right away.

Recommended Upgrades

We have a few different included options available for insulating your home, but many homeowners choose to upgrade to spray foam. Spray foam effectively fills all nooks and crannies in your walls, creating a stronger barrier against heat loss. The higher R-value of this insulation option will further reduce your need to run your furnace and air conditioner.

By making energy efficiency a top priority during the design and planning phase, our team ensures that you’ll be able to keep your home comfortable without breaking the bank. Investing in energy-efficient features will help you save money — and help the planet, too. It’s a win-win!
