PMC Homes, 14716 S. Grant, has been recognized by the United States Environmental Protection Agency with a 2008 Energy Star Leadership in Housing Award. The national award acknowledges the contributions that PMC Homes made to energy-efficient construction and environmental protection in 2007. PMC Homes builds a variety of homes, from bungalows to custom estate homes, all Energy Star compliant.
According to Sam Rashkin, National Director of Energy Star for Homes, “Energy Star qualified homes are better homes that cost less to own, protect our environment, reduce our reliance on imported energy, and improve our economy. Leadership in Housing award recipients are making a meaningful difference at this critical time in our country’s history.”
PMC Homes opted to revamp and redesign its home plans to meet Energy Star requirements in 2006. PMC’s President, Steve Harris, studied the Energy Star program guidelines and decided that it was the proper way to build their homes. “It’s good for the environment and good for our clients,” Harris commented.
PMC Homes completed its first two Energy Star homes in late 2006. In 2007, 100 percent of the homes PMC built were Energy Star compliant. Energy Star homes feature high-performance doors & windows, high R-value insulation, tightly constructed duct systems, high-efficiency heating & cooling systems, and appliances. Energy Star homes use substantially less energy for heating, cooling and water delivery.
