Building homes comes with great responsibility — not only for our homeowners, but for our environment too. When energy-efficient practices are used, the health of our homeowners improves, our environmental footprints reduce and our energy bills become less costly. When we analyze the benefits that energy-efficient homes provide, it no longer becomes a question of: should we contribute to making our homes healthier and more eco-friendly places to live? The answer to that question is yes every time. With our homes in Texas, we are one step closer to making our communities more environmentally-conscious, and improving the overall experience of homeownership.

Environments For Living®

Empire homes in the Houston market are constructed to meet the rigorous standards of the Environments for Living® Platinum program, and provide buyers a guarantee on the amount of energy used for heating and cooling.*


*Environments For Living® is a registered service mark of TopBuild Home Services. All Guarantees from the Environments For Living® Program are made by MASCO Home Services, Inc. (“Masco”) and not by Empire Communities. For more information about the Limited Heating and Cooling Energy Use Guarantee and the Limited Comfort Guarantee, visit environmentsforliving.com. Energy calculations and claims are estimates only and were developed by third parties based on the design of the home and the HERS index, and not specific testing of an individual home. The HERS® Index is a registered trademark of the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET). The actual energy efficiency of your home as built, and your energy use, will vary depending on, among other factors, location, orientation, changes made to the plan, including interior and exterior options, and may be higher or lower than the average HERS Index score shown. The Empire HERS score shown is an average of projected HERS ratings for homes built in the Empire Communities Houston area as of April 2022. For more information about RESNET visit www. Resnet.com. See an Empire Communities sales agent for more details. Specifications, terms, prices, features, dimensions, and availability subject to change without notice. E&O.E. April 2022.
