Energy Star Homes Sets New Market Share Highs

The EPA recently announced a 5% increase in national market share of new homes built to the Energy Star qualification in 2008 to 17%. 15 states had Energy Star homes market share of 20% or higher.

I would argue that this number increased largely thanks to the decline in overall new home construction, however that being said, this would indicate that when large scale new home construction rebounds, this market share will maintain or possibly continue to increase. 2010 and 2011 could provide hundreds of thousands of Energy Star homes and the HVAC industry should be ready for it.
