We believe in reducing the carbon footprint on the earth, reducing the energy needed to run a house, and in our responsibility to provide a safe and healthy environment in your home. We want to do the right thing. You will find this value woven into every piece of the home building process. This is why every home we build is Viridiant certified, Earth Craft certified, Energy Star certified, and undergoes H.E.R.S. (Home Energy Rating System) ratings.
When it comes to carbon footprint, J. Hall Homes makes the smartest and the most environmentally sound decisions possible on all of its home builds. J. Hall Homes also specializes in creating truly green, Energy Star® certified homes.
