The Annual Green Home Tour is held every spring. This tour is the premier annual event for people interested in Green building science, energy efficiency or the latest in green technologies in a new home or existing homes." Read more here.

Every Stanton Home, including our entry into the 2017 Triangle Green Home Tour, includes ecoSelect certification. Read about it here.

What is an eco-Select home certification?

ecoSelect is a Third Party Energy Certification that demonstrates energy efficiency in new homes.

The ecoSelect certification indicates that the construction is designed to provide higher levels of energy efficiency, per the national HERS index, with better indoor air quality and water efficiency than standard new homes.

With ecoSelect, energy efficient technological and scientific advancements will be built-in, inspected, and qualified to make your home more comfortable, while lowering your energy costs.

It takes a lot to earn the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) designation held by ecoSelect certification: There are only six programs in the nation that qualify.

The certification includes:

Quality Assurance

High Performance Windows

Programmable Thermostats
