Buying Your WaterSense Labeled New Home
Buying a new home is an investment for you and your family's future. But when you buy a WaterSense labeled home, you're also investing in the future of your community and the planet. WaterSense makes it easy for buyers to identify new homes that save water and energy. WaterSense labeled new homes are independently inspected and certified to use less water while still providing all the comfort and convenience you expect from a new home.
What Is a WaterSense Labeled New Home?
Homes that earn the WaterSense label feature WaterSense labeled plumbing fixtures, efficient hot water delivery, smart landscape design, and many other features to ensure that the home will save water for years to come. When compared to a traditional home, a WaterSense labeled new home can help a family of four save:
- 50,000 gallons of water per year—that's the equivalent of the water used to wash 2,000 loads of laundry
- As much as $600 per year on utility costs
