Focus On Energy - Building Distinctive & Energy Efficient Homes

Building a new home is a major investment. The Wisconsin Focus On Energy® Homes Program can help you make the most of that investment with a high-performance home that saves energy and money. Our construction partners are trained to help you build a home that's safer, more comfortable and built to last.

Every home in the Focus on Energy New Homes Program undergoes a series of performance tests and must meet specific program standards before being certified. This certification is your assurance that your new home is comfortable, safe, durable, and energy efficient.

It also helps ensure that you'll save money--year after year--on energy costs, and may increase your home's value at the time of resale.

Buyers of a Focus New Home can expect the following:

  • Framing and insulation installation review
  • Air-tightness to minimize drafts and create superior indoor air quality
  • Sealed combustion equipment and carbon monoxide detectors to ensure safety
  • Whole-house ventilation installed for proper ventilation (complies with ASHRAE 62.2-2007)

Plus, when you buy a Wisconsin Focus On Energy Home, you get the added benefit of knowing you're helping preserve Wisconsin's environment. Less energy used means fewer environmental effects on our air, water and land.
