BUILT TO SAVE™

Promoting energy efficient homes.

A Proud BUILT TO SAVE™ Member

BUILT TO SAVE™ is a program that gives a certification to new homes that meet energy-saving standards that exceed code requirements. Each home is inspected, tested, and verified by a third-party inspector. As a proud BUILT TO SAVE™ member, Magic Valley Electric Cooperative is helping homeowners conserve energy in our community.

Benefits of the BUILT TO SAVE Program for Homebuyers:

When you choose a BUILT TO SAVE™ home, you experience a variety of great benefits. BUILT TO SAVE™ certified homes are designed with energy efficiency in mind and will help you save energy and money for many years. Additional benefits include:

  • Inspected and tested by an independent, home energy Rater.
  • Tight construction and controlled air filtration.
  • Better indoor air quality.
  • Properly sized HVAC systems.
  • A more comfortable home with properly installed insulation.
  • Better resale value.

Benefits of the BUILT TO SAVE Program for Builders:

The BUILT TO SAVE™ brand identifies builders who are building high-performance homes that can save more money on utility bills than a similar home built to code. Stand out from the competition with energy-efficient, superior construction verified by an independent Rater to be BUILT TO SAVE™.

  • Differentiation from builders who are only building to code.
  • An outstanding source for marketing tools and resources.
  • Rebates from utility companies, if applicable.
  • Opportunities to partner with developers to promote sales.
  • Leveraged marketing with the BUILT TO SAVE™ ad campaigns.
  • Homebuyer education on the benefits of a BUILT TO SAVE™ home.
