KB Home, a home building company in the USA, has arranged an event to showcase its new homes that received the WaterSense tag from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The Springwood Community homes in Roseville have become the first homes in the U.S. to earn such a certification. The WaterSense program of EPA provides a national branding for the new water-efficient homes that conserves the usage of water and energy and saves on utility bills.
The WaterSense program of EPA provides a plan for the homeowners to save water and energy at their homes. The plan allows a new home with a family of four members to save around 50,000 gallons of water every year in its inside and outside usage when compared to the other normal homes. The water is enough to fill in five residential types of swimming pools. During the event, KB Home showcased the water conserving technologies incorporated in the buildings for the benefit of the community and the media.
The Springwood homes are also Greenpoint rated for their water conservation, energy saving, indoor water quality and resource saving capabilities. The homes that are located close to two parks, malls and schools are available from 1,774 to 2,597 square feet sizes having a maximum of three bathrooms and six bedrooms.
