Designed for peace of mind

You have our assurance that every new home we build is designed to be ENERGY STAR certified, a standard that confirms your new home meets strict EPA requirements — and that it’s built so you enjoy greater comfort, well-being and savings.


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

  • State-of-the-art 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.
  • To help ensure that our homes deliver the highest level of energy-efficient comfort, every home we build is tested and verified by independent raters to meet ENERGY STAR® certification standards.


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.

Every new home we build is designed to be ENERGY STAR® certified, a standard that fewer than 10% of homes nationwide meets — and designed from the foundation up to save you money, especially when compared to typical new and used homes.

High-performance 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.


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.

Here’s some highlights that we’re especially proud of:

  • Newsweek’s 2023 list of America’s Most Responsible Companies. The only national homebuilder to make the list three consecutive years for our sustainability leadership.
  • 2022 ENERGY STAR® Sustained Excellence Award. EPA’s highest distinction for energy efficiency, we have received this award for 12 consecutive years.
  • 2022 ENERGY STAR® Market Leader Awards. Honored to be the recipient of 28 awards, more than any other homebuilder.
  • 2022 WaterSense® Sustained Excellence Award. The first and only homebuilder to be noted, with 12 consecutive years of EPA recognition.
