ENERGY EFFICIENT HERS RATED HOME – Buying an Energy Built Certified home means you’re investing into a third party certified, pressure tested, and inspected home. The HERS Score (HOME ENERGY RATING SYSTEM - Click Here) Evaluates a home’s energy efficiency on a scale of zero to 100+, with zero being the most efficient. The lower the score, the more a customer saves on energy costs. A zero Index means a home uses no energy, a 100 index is a home built to current new consruction building codes. Every point below the 100 index means the consumer saves one percent on energy costs. Each home we build will be inspected for; Insulation Grade Levels, Air Seal Package, Window Efficiency, Heating & Cooling system efficiency, Water Heating System, Direction of the house and properly sized heating and cooling units. At Concept Builders we exceed the minimum required HERS Rating and constantly strive to achieve the lowest possible scores. Ask a sales associate to show you some of our recent scoring results and learn how this can benefit you when comparing builders.
