Energy Star Partner
On top of new home code requirements, our Commercial Building Division has been building Energy Star qualified new homes since 20010. The condos, town homes, and single family homes built by this division are delivering some of the most energy efficient homes in the area. Our average HERS score ( HERS is like the MPG rating for homes) is 70 which means it is 30 % more efficient than a standard new home & about 40% more efficient than homes 10 years or older. One of our town homes certificates is shown below. An estimated yearly savings of $865 is not too shabby. Think of what you can do with an extra $865!
Bonus! Water Management System
In addition to energy efficiency, our Energy Star qualified homes come with a Comprehensive Water Management System to protect roofs, walls, and foundations. Flashings, drainage planes, and site grading to move water away from the roof to the ground and then away from the home. Water-resistant materials underneath slabs to reduce the potential for water entering into the home. Management of moisture levels in building materials during construction
