EPG®

Every KB Home floor plan design features a KB Home Energy Performance Guide® that provides an estimate of both monthly energy costs and monthly savings over a typical resale home.

KB Home Energy Performance Guide® (EPG®)
 
Buying a new KB Home® has many advantages, including substantially better operating efficiency over a typical existing home. The EPG information® provides an estimate of both monthly energy costs and monthly savings over a typical resale home. We provide a Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index score for our new homes in all states and a similar energy efficiency measure for all of our new homes in California.

ENERGY STAR® Legacy and Impact 
 
Since joining ENERGY STAR in 2000, we have built more than 124,000 ENERGY STAR certified homes. The EPA estimates that homeowners living in these homes have saved more than $680 million on utility bills and reduced CO? emissions by 4 billion pounds, which is the equivalent of removing 382,000 cars from the road.

WATER WISE

WATER-CONSERVING HOMES — SAVINGS IN EVERY DROP.

All KB homes include a number of water-saving features to help reduce usage and help save money. The standard water-efficient features included in every new KB home, at no added cost to our buyers, result in an estimated annual utility bill savings of up to $300 when compared to a typical existing home that lacks these features.

Every KB home includes WaterSense® labeled faucets, toilets and shower heads. These fixtures help maximize water efficiency without sacrificing performance. Dishwashers installed in every KB home are not only ENERGY STAR® certified for energy efficiency, but also use significantly less water than standard models. Additional water-efficient options are available at the KB Home Design Studio, including alternative fixtures and appliances.

To date, KB Home has constructed the most WaterSense labeled new homes in the nation. We are the only homebuilder to be honored by the EPA WaterSense program for eight straight years, including four consecutive Sustained Excellence Awards (2015-2018) and WaterSense Partner of the Year (2011-2014).

HEALTHY HOME

BETTER HOME — IMPROVING THE INDOOR ENVIRONMENT.

All KB homes incorporate a combination of materials, construction techniques and products that works together to help deliver better indoor air quality, especially when compared to most resale homes on the market today.

Each KB home features sealed combustion appliances, low-VOC interior paint and low-VOC carpeting. KB homes also come with whole-house mechanical ventilation and MERV 8-rated air filters that together provide a constant source of filtered air to help reduce indoor air pollutants and help remove finer airborne particles, improving indoor air quality.

SMART SYSTEMS

Your KB home has an edge over resale homes – it is designed to support your connected lifestyle. For example, you can conveniently and efficiently charge your mobile devices at the built-in USB outlet in the kitchen, which eliminates the need for a converter plug.

Select home automation features, including smart thermostats, lighting controls and Internet-connected door locks, that can help you stay connected in your new state-of-the-art KB home. Other technology options, like Whirlpool® smart appliances and electric vehicle charging stations, are also available at KB Home Design Studio.
