RAYMORE, Mo. - This 2012 Saint Jude Dream Home has received a high-energy efficiency rating.
The home in Raymore, Missouri is 4,500 square feet and is Energy Star-certified.
In addition to testing the energy star appliances inspectors used a fan to suck out the air to see if any was seeping out of the house through the windows or walls to prevent mold-causing moisture.
"We want to make sure there is not a lot of air leakage in the house,” said Amy Walker, a home energy inspector from Hathmore Industries. “We seal this insulation inspection and at the end we test it…to make sure.”
Tickets for the Saint Jude Dream home go on sale Thursday, April 5, 2012.
They cost $100 and only 9,500 are available this year.
