Markel Homes Embraces Energy Star 3.0

Markel Homes, a Boulder-based home builder announced that it is now adhering to the Energy Star 3.0 standards.

For years Boulder and the surrounding communities have enjoyed the high-quality construction and classic/contemporary styles from Markel Homes. Whether it’s the North End in Louisville, Niwot Meadow Farm, White Hawk Ranch or Boulder’s Dakota Ridge, and many others around Boulder County, you’ll know it if you’ve ever been inside a Markel Homes property.

I’ve been a fan of Markel for a long time, and this builder doesn’t disappoint. Several clients have purchased a Markel home with my help, and I’m happy to say they all are quite pleased.

Now with this new step forward, embracing Energy Star 3.0, Markel confirms what I’ve known all along — Markel strives to meet the demands and needs of buyers.

I’d seriously enjoy having the opportunity to talk to you about your plans if you’re moving, or if you know someone who is considering a move, and needs some straight answers.

Markel has been building homes for about 40 years, just a tad longer than I’ve lived here, but not by much!

Here are some of the bullet points in what constitutes the energy-efficient and green practices in all of Markel’s new single-family and townhome projects:

  • 92% high-efficiency furnaces and Energy Star-rated automatic setback thermostats.
  • Double-paned, insulated and argon-filled low thermal emissivity (low-E) windows.
  • Energy Star-rated appliances and lighting.
  • Low volatile organic compound, or VOC, paints and cabinets.
  • Watersense bathroom faucets and low-flow toilets and shower heads.
  • Landscaping with low water-use zone and drip irrigation systems.

Markel also helps their buyers with operating the home’s green features, and provides new homeowners with an annual energy cost comparison.
