Manhattan Home Builders to Build Homes that Save Water and Energy
Corpus Christi, TX — Manhattan Home Builders is strengthening its commitment to green building by partnering with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) WaterSense® program to provide WaterSense labeled new homes in Corpus Christi.
Manhattan Home Builders is now building homes that save water and energy by including WaterSense labeled products, water-efficient landscaping, and plumbing systems designed to use less water while still performing well. All WaterSense labeled new homes are independently certified to be about 20 percent more water-efficient than a typical new home, and they use less energy to heat water.
“WaterSense labeled new homes are an investment that helps consumers save water, energy, and money on utilities,” said Sheila Frace, Director of EPA Office of Water’s Municipal Support Division. “In fact, compared to a traditional home, a WaterSense labeled new home will save a family of four as much as 50,000 gallons of water per year—enough to wash more than 2,000 loads of laundry. These savings can add up to $600 in utility bill savings.”
Manhattan Home Builders WaterSense labeled new homes will be outfitted with WaterSense labeled plumbing products, other water-saving fixtures, ENERGY STAR qualified appliances, and an efficient hot water delivery system. These homes will also include landscaping that uses less water while still maintaining its curb appeal.
“We’re excited to partner with WaterSense to build more efficient homes, save homeowners money, and protect natural resources,” said Jon Roel, owner of Manhattan Home Builders. “A Manhattan Home Builders WaterSense labeled home is not only a wise investment for homeowners, but it’s an investment in our community and the future of our planet.”
WaterSense, a partnership program sponsored by EPA, seeks to protect the future of our nation’s water supply by offering people a simple way to use less water with water-efficient products, new homes, and services. Since the program’s inception in 2006, WaterSense has helped consumers save 125 billion gallons of water and more than $2 billion in water and energy bills. For more information, visit WaterSense.
