Cypress Homes partners with Focus on Energy New Homes Program. Since the program’s inception, Cypress Homes has built hundreds of “Focus on Energy Homes.” As a high performance builder, we strive to provide the highest quality service and product to all our customers. That’s why we participate in the Focus on Energy New Homes Program – a program designed to help homeowners know and understand that they are building a high performance home that is comfortable, safe, durable, and energy efficient. And we can prove it.



The Focus on Energy New Homes program is a simple way for you to understand that the quality of your new home lies in the details — details that you may not see. Like the safety of a power-vented water heater. And the comfort and energy efficiency provided by properly installed insulation. Or the convenience of a quiet exhaust fan and how it contributes to better indoor air quality. These are simple, inexpensive details that can help you get the most comfortable, safe, durable, and energy efficient new home possible. Keep reading to learn more about the program.


Cypress works closely with Focus on Energy New Homes program consultants to create a home environment that is safe, comfortable, durable, and energy efficient.  We accomplish this through site visits and performance tests by independent inspectors that verify construction details. These tests ensure that your home works as designed and meets the Focus on Energy New Homes criteria.


As with any major purchase you’re looking for quality in your new home. In a Focus on Energy New Homes program home the quality is in the details — details you may not be aware of:

  • A quality home built with greater attention to detail
  • Properly installed insulation and draft-free construction
  • The ability to control or enhance indoor air quality by managing indoor moisture and airborne pollutants
  • Added safety, because furnace, water heater and fireplace combustion by-products are exhausted directly from the home
  • Added durability, because warm moist inside air, as well as rain and moisture from the outside, is kept out of walls and attic spaces, preventing structural damage
  • Greater energy efficiency, including electrical as well as monthly space
    heating and cooling savings.


Focus on Energy New Homes program homes are at least 25 percent more efficient than those built to the Wisconsin Uniform Dwelling code.

Each certified home includes the following features:

  • Professional consultation
  • Tested building air tightness
  • Tested ventilation equipment
  • Mandatory safe combustion equipment
  • Carbon monoxide detector (s)
  • Electrical efficiency options


We value this program and believe it is important. We believe it is important for all homeowners to have the most comfortable, safe, durable, and energy-efficient home possible, and we can prove it. Call us and we’ll tell you how.

Energy Efficiency is just one of the reasons we think you should consider Cypress Homes to build your custom home. Check out the top 7 Reasons to build with Cypress Homes.
