Energy Smart Qualified Homes

Energy Smart The SMART Way to Build a Home!

Today’s new homes are much more efficient in comparison to homes built just a decade ago. Our homes are more affordable to maintain, comfortable and have a higher value.

With home energy costs skyrocketing day after day, it only makes sense to find out how energy efficient a home really is. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that houses built in line with Energy Smart guidelines use 50% less energy than older existing homes.

At Taylor Homes, our average HERS score is a crazy low 65! That means we are building New homes that use:

·50% less energy than Existing homes (yes, that’s half as much energy use)

·15% less energy than Standard new homes

·FREE to you—it’s a Standard Feature at Taylor Homes!

What is the HERS index?

The RESNET HERS Index is the industry standard by which a home’s energy efficiency is measured. The HERS or Home Energy Rating System was developed by RESNET and is the nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating a home’s energy performance. Certified RESNET Home Energy Raters conduct inspections to verify a home’s energy performance and determine what improvements can be made to increase it.

The LOWER the HERS index the more energy efficient a home is.

At Taylor Homes, our index number is set at a minimum of 85, meaning… Lower energy costs for YOU, the Taylor Homes homeowner.
