Your home will be more affordable to maintain, more comfortable to live in and have a higher resale value. RESNET is a nationally recognized corporation committed to reducing homeowner utility costs thru energy efficiency. RESNET is recognized by the US Dept of Energy and the EPA.
We can assure your energy efficiency thru an inspection by an independent RESNET home rater. He will perform an insulation inspection, blower door and duct blaster test. The results from these tests along with the products used in your home, will determine your RESNET HERS (Home Energy Rating System) Score. See the chart to the left for the HERS Score Chart – a lower number is better.
An Existing Resale Home will have an average score of 130
A New Home built to current energy codes will score 100
A Homes by Eagle Home scores an average of 58†- a whopping 42% energy savings over other new homes.
What Does this mean for you?
Your newly built Eagle Home will save you $1257 per year over an existing home and $718 over a new home built to current energy standards‡. Not only do you have extra money in your pocket, but your home will be more comfortable to live in and have a better resale value.
