Designed for peace of mind

Home should be more than just a roof over your head, it should inspire happiness and be a place for you to thrive. Plus, you have the confidence of knowing that our homes are designed to be ENERGY STAR® certified to provide greater comfort, well-being, and savings.


Home should be a place that, simply put, can make life more comfortable.

  • High-quality heating and cooling systems, as well as high-efficiency windows and insulation help keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
  • Smart thermostats help maintain optimum temperature for your personal comfort and coziness all year round.
  • Enhanced air sealing helps to keep dust and pollen outside, and reduce drafts and noise inside.


Your home should be the best place of all. That’s why we are committed to building better homes with healthier indoor environments for your well-being.

  • Standard interior door hardware comes with antimicrobial product protection that helps reduce the spread of bacteria and germs.
  • Environmentally conscious products for our flooring, tile, paint and cabinetry.
  • High-performance ventilation systems enhance your home’s environment by regularly introducing fresh outdoor air and reducing indoor air pollutants.
  • ENERGY STAR® allows us to deliver a healthier indoor environment, and that’s better for your overall well-being.


We work hard to reduce the long-term costs of homeownership of a KB home wherever possible, so that you have more to spend on the things you love.

Our new homes are designed to be ENERGY STAR® certified, a standard that fewer than 10% of homes nationwide meets, meaning from the foundation up they can help save you money when compared to typical new and used homes without certification.

High-efficiency windows and insulation, plus energy-efficient appliances and lighting work together to help lower utility costs.

Our KB homes’ WaterSense® fixtures and features help conserve natural resources and save you money.

Our 'whole home approach' to energy and water efficiency means you enjoy an average annual savings of up to an estimated $1,800 on utility bills compared to typical used homes without certification.


Public recognition for a job well done is always great, but these awards are more personal, because they reflect our longstanding commitment to building new homes that offer our customers more peace of mind. That’s good for you, and it’s better for the environment.
