Energy Star Partner
Every custom home we build is 100% Energy Star Certified and we could not be prouder to be an Energy Star Partner.
Energy Star is the US Department of Energy symbol for energy efficiency. It identifies new homes and more than 40 types of products that are energy efficient and offer the features, quality, and personal comfort that today's consumers expect. Products that can earn the ENERGY STAR include appliances, lighting, home office equipment, consumer electronics, and heating and cooling equipment.
In every Homeway Home you will find Energy Star ratings in the insulation we use, the high-performance windows we install, the tight construction and tight ducts and the energy-efficient heating and cooling equipment. In essence we don’t just build energy efficient homes, we prove it by presenting you with an official Energy Star Certificate.
The Energy Strength Difference
Today, regular insulation is just not enough. Recognizing that is why we use the Energy Strength Spray Foam Insulation System in every new house we build.
Energy Strength Spray Foam is an environmentally friendly 2lb closed cell foam insulation that completely fills cracks and gaps in stud and ceiling spaces. It also adds structural strength to the house; in fact, it is twice as strong as regular insulation. We have the test results to prove it.
What that means, of course, is your home will have two times the insulation value and two times the strength of regular wall and ceiling insulation at no extra cost. And you will start saving on energy immediately. Energy Strength Spray Foam Insulation makes sense.
HERS stands for Home Energy Rating System. It is a scoring system set by the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) to determine the energy efficiency of a home. The HERS Index starts at 100 (the score of the HERS Reference Home) and goes to zero. The lower the score, the more energy efficient the house is in comparison to the HERS Reference Home.
Homeway Homes uses our Energy Strength Spray Foam insulation thus achieving a score rating below 50! With our homes, you use less energy, which means you save more over the life of your home.
