We Test the Science in Our Homes

htsolutions"Energy efficient." You hear the term thrown around so loosely these days that it's almost lost its impact.

 

Manufacturers and even home builders so often claim they are "green" or "high tech," but what does that really mean? Do they regularly test their products and practices?

 

Cobblestone Homes goes beyond the cliche. We're the real deal when it comes to the latest high-tech solutions that benefit our homeowners and our planet. We walk the walk.

reddoorAt Cobblestone Homes, we take energy efficiency very seriously. We know that saving you money on energy bills is as vital as preserving Earth's precious resources. We perform rigorous tests on our homes, methods and the products we put in them. We build a test house each year to try out new technologies. We verify the science utilized in our homes, ensuring Cobblestone homes are built for health, durability and comfort. And we have built and certified more ENERGY STAR homes than all other builders in the Great Lakes Bay Region.

Yes, Cobblestone builds energy-efficient homes. We are green. But more than that, we're high-performance.

Although they look like most homes and are connected to the utility grid, Cobblestone's ZEH (Zero Energy Homes) are significantly different than other houses. Unlike other homes, over the course of a year, our Zero Energy Homes produce about as much energy as they consume. This “net zero” consumption level is accomplished through the combination of energy-efficient construction and the homes' renewable energy technology. Cobblestone's first ZEH in 2010 — Michigan's first ZEH — was also the first home in the U.S. to utilize Dow Powerhouse Solar Shingles. These extremely affordable, state-of-the-art homes are about information, innovation and inspiration — showcasing tomorrow’s technologies today. Sustainable is attainable!
