Energy efficiency

Going green. Energy Efficient. HERS Ratings. What does it all mean for a homebuyer?

In a biodegradable nutshell, it means that the more energy efficient your home, the more MONEY you will save on utilities, the less your CARBON FOOTPRINT is, and the more COMFORTABLE you will be, which is why Homes by Taber proudly offers energy efficient homes that are energy rated by a third party.

Buyers should think of a HERS score as they would a golf score: the lower the better!

The HERS Index

The HERS Index is a scoring system established by the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) and provides an easily understandable means to compare the relative energy efficiency of different homes. When shopping for a home, buyers should keep in mind that if the home is not rated, it is not energy efficient.

HOME BY TABER
STANDARD NEW HOUSE
EXISTING RESALE HOUSE

A typical existing home scores a 130, but the lowest score for a Homes by Taber home is 51, which means we are saving our customers $1,419 a year in energy bills, per RESNET.us.

When Homes by Taber builds a home, we go above and beyond the recommended RESNET standards to provide an even more energy efficient and comfortable home.

An impactful feature that sets us apart is our superior HVAC system with a 96% surface, a 16 SEER AC unit, and custom ductwork that is specifically engineered for each home.

After all systems are installed, we mastic all of our ducts to ensure limited air infiltration, which also drastically reduces the amount of dust in the home. Our systems are engineered and inspected by a third-party inspector, to ensure that your house works as a system so every room in the house will not vary within 3 degrees of the thermostat.
