Energy Efficient Homes

When it comes to green home construction, Bass Built exceeds all expectations.

To earn the ENERGY STAR, a home must meet strict guidelines for energy efficiency set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. These homes are at least 15% more energy efficient than homes built to the 2004 International Residential Code (IRC), and include additional energy-saving features that typically make them 20–30% more efficient than standard homes.

More than 1 million ENERGY STAR qualified homes have been built in the United States. Last year, families living in these homes saved more than $270 million on their utility bills, while avoiding greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from 370,000 vehicles. Hear their stories and learn about what makes living in an ENERGY STAR home so special.

Bass Built proudly offers the most energy efficient housing for your money in the market. Our homes are 30% more efficient that code requires, and easily qualify for Duke Energy’s HERO (High-Efficiency Residential Option) plus HERS (Home Energy Rating System) program.

Our green home construction, energy efficient designs, and Energy Star Homes save you money while helping protect the environment. Energy efficiency is a hot topic and is more vital now than ever for us and future generations. Energy efficient homes protect the environment and feel more comfortable, while also keeping your utility bills low. We take extra steps to make sure that your home is the most energy efficient it can be with features like Andersen windows, upgraded insulation, high-efficiency HVAC systems, house wraps, and tight construction.

Our commitment to this ideal is further illustrated by the fact that we are proud builders of ENERGY STAR qualified new homes in Kure Beach, Carolina Beach, and Wilmington, North Carolina. Homes that have earned the ENERGY STAR designation have been inspected by certified raters and meet the ENERGY STAR performance guidelines. No gimmicks, no unsubstantiated claims of utility cost savings; just real third party proof that saves you money every month.

Bryant Bass is honored to be one of the leading Green Certified Builders in the area and would like the opportunity to discuss with you, first-hand, the benefits both to you and the earth by using Bass Built Homes to build your next North Carolina Custom Beach Home. He can enlighten you on features that some homeowners didn’t even realize they were getting. For example, a byproduct of the energy efficient home is the lack of noise. Since we build solid homes, the tight seal and blanket of exceptional amounts of insulation, your home will be peacefully quiet compared to the outside world.

Green building has become an increasingly major concern for our clients. As a company, Bass Built has always been environmentally aware and committed to lessening our footprint.

Green building also applies a cost analysis to the entire life of the project — considering both the construction process and the estimated years of use following completion. This approach determines the appropriate up-front expenses while calculating the long term benefits of this building choice.

Bass Built Custom Homes has followed all guidelines and requirements when clients desire a green project. Bass Build is proud to say Barbara Bass has taken her years of professional experience and advanced degrees and made green construction her passion.
