We love our Deltec. It is a wonderful design and is VERY fuel efficient. It was green before green was cool. - Becky A., Greenville, SC
Due to the superior energy efficient design of the Deltec home, all the south facing glass and the active solar power equipment, the home is totally self sufficient. - John J., Telluride, CO

Each time the gas company sends out a bill, they include a chart comparing our consumption with their average customer. Always, our consumption is just half of the average. - Ed B., Holcomb, NY
Our past electric bills ranged from $120 to 250. With our 4000 sq. ft. Deltec (around 3 times the size of our old house), our electric bill averages around $120, $130 per month. - Kim M., Magnolia, TX
We love our Deltec home. It is very energy efficient (we have not had a gas bill over $75 this year), spacious, easy to maintain, and incredibly "livable." - Daniel & Lynn W., Wildwood, PA
We have just gone through our first winter and I can't believe how tight this house is, and how it weathers the local winds which are occasionally pretty interesting. - Joseph R., Oakhurst, CA
Using regular windows, floor plan design & sub-tunnels we have such great natural lighting that we almost never need to turn on any lights in the house. - Beth H., Charleston, SC
Even on coldest days in Colorado, our house stays in the low 60s without using the furnace during the day. In the summer it never gets above 75 even if 15 degrees warmer outside. Love my house! - Suzanne M., Buena Vista, CO
Everyone else around us is crying about $500-$600 a month electrical bills and ours was $239.00 last month which is really low for Hawaii. - Keith B., Holualoa, HI
For our new home, we built to the basic Deltec standards…and our Deltec Home earned a HERS score of 34. Our home uses 66% less energy than code-built new homes. We’re very pleased with the energy efficiency. -Barbara P., Richford, VT- - Barbara P., Richford, VT
