One of the reasons home buyers choose newly built homes in Colorado Springs CO is the fact that new homes tend to be more energy efficient. Here at CreekStone Homes, we go out of our way to build some of the most energy efficient homes possible, with homes ranking even better on the Home Energy Rating System (HERS) than the typical Energy Star(R) rated home. We do this, not only to save you money, but to make for a healthier home environment that is good for the environment.
Certainly, one of the big reasons to choose an energy efficient home is the fact that you’ll pay less on your energy bills. HERS is the industry standard by which a home’s energy efficiency is measured. The lower the score, the better the efficiency. Your typical pre-owned resale home, due to wear and tear, along with older, less efficient systems, tends to rank around 130. A new home built purely to code ranks at 100, while an Energy Star home ranks at 70, showing you the range of efficiency. However, when it comes to CreekStone homes, we average a ranking of 55! While each home and plan varies in the ranking, an average of 55 shows just how efficient our homes are. That leads to significant savings for you now and in the future.
While lower energy bills is a big plus, it’s not the only reason more people are searching for energy efficient and eco-friendly homes. Your family’s health can be affected by your home. Low-quality seals let in allergens. Inefficient air systems can cause a variety of health issues. By using eco-friendly products and systems throughout the home, the result is cleaner air and a healthier environment for your family.
Your CreekStone homes in Colorado Springs CO can make you feel healthier and happier, with the added bonus of knowing you’re doing your part to help the environment, as well. By choosing an energy efficient home, you’re reducing your carbon footprint, and making yourself and the world a little healthier. Explore our home designs and let us tell you more about how we build thoughtfully and efficiently so you too can live a greener, healthier and less expensive life.Tags: homebuilder in colorado co, new homes colorado springs co
