Building a custom home is a big decision for any homeowner. You have to weigh all of the pros and cons of building a new home, where to build, who to hire, and what details you want to include. But, one part of the process that shouldn’t be difficult is choosing a RESNET EnergySmart Builder.
Carrington Homes is proud to announce that we are now a RESNET Builder. What does that mean? It means that the homes we build follow RESNET’s stringent standards and and we’re upfront about a home’s HERS Index Score, the industry standard used to measure a home’s energy efficiency.
Here are just a few of the benefits building with a RESNET EnergySmart Builder gives you:
A more efficient home is more affordable to maintain.
Being a RESNET EnergySmart Builder means that Carrington Homes is focused on building custom homes with higher energy efficiency. This means installing appliances and using building materials that meet high energy savings standards. Making these modifications in appliances and materials leads to conserving things like water, energy to heat and cool your home, and even electricity required to light up your rooms.
Energy efficient homes are more comfortable for homeowners.
Because energy efficient homes are built using the highest energy rated materials, they are much more effective at retaining heat and air and blocking out the heat and cold. With new technologies, advances in windows, and upgraded materials, RESNET EnergySmart Builders are able to build more comfortable homes.
A RESNET EnergySmart home has a higher resale value for homeowners.
Technologies and building materials that go into a RESNET home allow the home’s value to automatically increase. While you might pay more upfront for these higher rated appliances and building materials, you’ll spend less on energy bills, and end up with a home worth more than it would have been otherwise.
