Efficent Energy Use from Top to Bottom Re-Energizing

When you buy a MainVue Home - with its responsible, reliable and cost-effective energy efficiency systems - you share all the rewards with the environment. It starts with MainVue’s ENERGY STAR™ Advanced Lighting Package - a sterling feature that uses 75 percent less energy than older standard fixtures. Our LED bulbs are toxin-free and 100 percent recyclable.

Since this lighting system generates 75 percent less heat, it also reduces a homeowner’s need for high-cost home cooling - a leading cause of greenhouse gas emissions. Even the simple light bulbs in ENERGY Star-qualified fixtures - which last about 10 times longer than standard bulbs - save you money. A single LED bulb requires the material and production of 25 incandescent bulbs. The overall result: MainVue Homes rewards you with lower energy bills.

Save even more money with our York natural gas furnaces. They hold a 80 percent rating for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency - and consume 30 percent less fuel for operation. That makes your heat bill lower.

Utility bills drop even more with MainVue’s use of tankless water heaters. Because these systems heat water on demand, they don’t require the expensive energy needed to keep standby water hot indefinitely. Some homeowners will see savings of up to 30 percent with these systems.

Overall, this energy efficiency means greater comfort and savings for MainVue homeowners - and is yet another example of MainVue Homes’ leadership in environmental responsibility and healthy living.

Replenishing our Earth Growing

At MainVue and Henley, we know that building homes takes both vision - and retrospection. We have learned this from our recent successes as well as the experiences drawn from a rich 320-year heritage - something our partners call the “Sumitomo Spirit.” It has taught us that balance and harmony with the earth and its resources is more important now than ever before.

Already, this reinforces the Sumitomo’s world-recognized “Project Earth” program which works to off-set all carbon emissions that go into the logging, production, manufacturing and building of each one of the 13,000 homes we build each year.

It has also solidified our mission to actively regenerate forests. In fact, Sumitomo reforests in one year an area that is equal to twice the total floor area of new homes we build and speculation homes we plan during that year. Our annual area planted is nearly 745 acres - with almost 300,000 indigenous trees - plus some fast-growing tree species. We use an “environmental plantation” for forest regeneration - and a separate “industrial plantation” that logs adult trees for building materials and furniture. Both are in a part of East Java in Indonesia. One area has been ravaged by volcano-caused forest fires leaving only grassland; the other uses land outside national forests that has been designated for this use and is supported by local workers for its preservation policies.

The result: This initiative contributes to regional revitalization by providing local employment opportunities as well as a stable source of income from the sale of timber.

It’s a long-term commitment. We plan to manage and cultivate these plantations until March 2026 - and it’s just one example of how MainVue and Henley value the importance of harnessing “the power of the forests” for a better future for all.
