- Outstanding HERS Ratings
According to the HERS Index website, “The Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index is the industry standard by which a home’s energy efficiency is measured”. This system is used to inspect, test, and calculate the home’s energy performance. As shown in the graphic below, the lower the number in the system, the more energy efficient your home. We strive to always be below 55 in the HERS Index rating.
2. Installing the right equipment
You are creating a unique home. That means the HVAC unit must be the “right size”. This also means that a balanced system with ceiling returns in all major rooms should be set in order to bring your energy bill even lower. Lastly, you need to be covered for those humid summer days. So, an Infinity Programmable Thermostats with dehumidification for moisture control must be set properly to help you bring down the energy bill.
3. High-performance windows
Investing in 366 Vinyl Low-E HP Insulated glass will ensure more protection from heat and cold. You will also see a drastic reduction of solar heat in the summer. Low-E Windows also filters up to 98% of UV rays. Moreover, they also prevent your furniture, drapes, and carpet from fading.
