The new code presents a great opportunity for homebuyers to purchase an energy efficient home now from Gerstad Builders for no additional cost. For a short time Gerstad Builders will absorb the extra building costs related to compliance with this mandated legislation.  Look for increases of about $5,000 per home to start soon, so don’t delay.  Now is a great time to buy an affordable new home from Gerstad Builders and take advantage of all the latest energy conservation technology for free.

The new Illinois energy code became effective on January 29, 2010.  This new code requires all contractors to meet or exceed the energy standards established in the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) when building a new home.  This is one of the most restrictive codes in the nation for new homes, but it means huge savings for homeowners in the long run because building a more energy efficient home will result in lower energy bills over the life of the home.

For more information on all the Green features included in Gerstad Homes, make sure to visit the Gerstad Blog. All Gerstad Builders, Inc. communities in Illinois meet these new standards: Liberty Trails in McHenry, Dawson Creek in Poplar Grove, and Pheasant Ridge in Richmond. Come out and visit us today!
