Why Earth Advantage®?

It’s simple: Better Value—Today and Tomorrow. Earth Advantage-certified homes retain their value better than conventional homes.

About Earth Advantage®?

The Earth Advantage Institute is a third-party certification program. Every Earth Advantage home receives multiple inspections. Assessing and certifying the insulation, heating/cooling equipment, window installation, efficiency of the heating and cooling systems, and how airtight your house is constructed.

As the homeowner, you will receive a certificate issued by the Earth Advantage Institute stating your custom home meets their standards. This means you have a tangible asset that adds value to your home, in addition to your savings in energy costs.

Housing market studies have shown Earth Advantage-certified homes to sell for as much as 12 percent more than conventional homes. And in slow economic times, these certified homes have outsold their counterparts.

Earth Advantage Institute is a nonprofit organization that works with the building industry to help implement sustainable building practices. Its mission is to create an immediate, practical and cost-effective path to sustainability and to reduce the environmental impact of creating new homes.
