Energy efficiency is standard on every home.
Focusing on helping people build energy efficient homes that save homeowners money year after year in a tangible way is how we have been leading the industry from our beginning.
We partner with energy raters to independently rate your home’s energy usage so you can take advantage of your electrical company’s energy star rebate programs.
Our modern technologies applied through our building processes in collaboration with energy raters make it possible to create a superior performing home.

What is the HERS Index?
A home energy rating involves an analysis of a home’s construction plans and onsite inspections. Based on the home’s plans, the Home Energy Rater uses an energy efficiency software package to perform an energy analysis of the home’s design. The rater then conducts onsite inspections, typically including a blower door test (to test the leakiness of the house) and a duct test (to test the leakiness of the ducts). Results of these tests, along with inputs derived from the plan review, are used to generate the HERS Index score for the home.
