Conifer Realty is pleased to announce that the apartments in Rittenberg Manor have earned U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) ENERGY STAR certification.
The ENERGY STAR label identifies apartments and condo units in multifamily buildings that are designed to be at least 15% more efficient than typical new construction. Throughout the construction process, independent testing and inspections are performed to confirm that the building meets the strict requirements set by the EPA’s ENERGY STAR program. Once this verification is completed, the units in the building can earn the ENERGY STAR label.
“Our company is committed to raising the bar for energy efficiency in our multifamily high rise building construction projects like Rittenberg Manor,” said Sam Leone, Vice President of Conifer. “The units in this building will provide important benefits for both residents and the environment.”
ENERGY STAR certified units provide durable, high-quality, and comfortable living spaces with third-party inspected energy-saving features like high performance windows, tight construction and ducts, high performance heating and cooling equipment, and efficient lighting and appliances.
“Developers who partner with ENERGY STAR offer new apartments and condo units that are designed and built to standards well above most others on the market today,” said Jonathan Passe, Director of EPA’s ENERGY STAR Residential Branch. “ENERGY STAR certified units are built with a comprehensive design, construction, and verification process to ensure that these living spaces will offer real energy efficiency, comfort, durability, and value for years to come.”
