The EPA recently announced the winners of their prestigious Indoor airPLUS Leader Awards and Mandalay Homes were honored for the second year in a row. Only six builders nationwide received this award.

“Our commitment to building energy efficient homes, that offer better air quality, isn’t just about helping our environment. We are building homes that not only live better for our homeowners, they operate better. Every part of the house offers ease of use and less maintenance over time, along with the significant savings,” said Dave Everson, owner of Mandalay Homes. “We are proud partners with these national programs that are encouraging builders to construct better homes and we are working to exceed even these standards and build the most efficient home in the market.”

According to the EPA, “Mandalay Homes is a 100 percent committed Indoor airPLUS homebuilder and promotes improved indoor air quality throughout all aspects of their sales and marketing strategies. Mandalay Homes has been able to plainly describe the features and benefits of living in an Indoor airPLUS home to their buyers. This is Mandalay Homes’ second Indoor airPLUS Leader Award, and they have also received the DOE’s Housing Innovation Award in both 2014 and 2015.”

Last month, ENERGY STAR recognized Mandalay Homes with their 2016 Market Leader Award in recognition of their continued commitment to energy efficiency. This award recognizes the company’s 79 ENERGY STAR certified homes completed in 2015 and places them in the top 1 percent of energy-efficient homebuilders.
