At KB Home, our never-ending commitment to quality and sustainability results in homes that are cost-effective and environmentally friendly. Our energy efficient homes are built to meet the strict ENERGY STAR certified new homes standards as set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
All KB homes include a number of water-saving features to help reduce usage and help save money. The standard water-efficient features included in every new KB home, at no added cost to our buyers, result in an estimated annual utility bill savings of up to $300 when compared to a typical existing home that lacks these features.
Every KB home includes WaterSense® labeled faucets, toilets and shower heads. These fixtures help maximize water efficiency without sacrificing performance. Dishwashers installed in every KB home are not only ENERGY STAR® certified for energy efficiency, but also use significantly less water than standard models. Additional water-efficient options are available at the KB Home Design Studio, including alternative fixtures and appliances.
All KB homes incorporate a combination of materials, construction techniques and products that works together to help deliver better indoor air quality, especially when compared to most resale homes on the market today.
Each KB home features sealed combustion appliances, low-VOC interior paint and low-VOC carpeting. KB homes also come with whole-house mechanical ventilation and MERV 8-rated air filters that together provide a constant source of filtered air to help reduce indoor air pollutants and help remove finer airborne particles, improving indoor air quality.
Your KB home has an edge over resale homes – it is designed to support your connected lifestyle. For example, you can conveniently and efficiently charge your mobile devices at the built-in USB outlet in the kitchen, which eliminates the need for a converter plug.
Select home automation features, including smart thermostats, lighting controls and Internet-connected door locks, that can help you stay connected in your new state-of-the-art KB home. Other technology options, like Whirlpool® smart appliances and electric vehicle charging stations, are also available at KB Home Design Studio.
