Working to reduce our footprint in every new home with ecoSelect*
As a new home builder, we understand that the impact of a new home should be minimized whenever possible. It's a delicate balance of cost and efficiencies. That's why we partner with ecoSelect to give each new home we build a HERS (Home Energy Rating System) rating.
This means when you buy a SAVVY home in many of our markets such as Raleigh, Sanford, Pinehurst, and Fayetteville, you can feel confident that you're getting a healthy, comfortable and efficient home. A certified ecoSelect home is inspected and energy rated by a certified third party organization, giving you clear expectations of what your utility bill will be before ever stepping foot in your new home.
A HERS score will guide you in regards to the energy efficiency of your new home. Heating, cooling, and water heating make up the second highest cost of owning a home. (The mortgage is first.) So, the lower the HERS rating, the more efficient these items are. Check out the video below for details about the HERS rating.
* Savvy Homes provides ecoSelect certifications in specific communities. Those communities are identified on our website with the ecoSelect logo.
