Energy Efficiency Features

A Smart Neighborhood house is 35% more efficient than a standard house built to 2006 code with a Home Energy Rating System (HERS) score of 65 or lower. So, what does that mean and what helps lower the score?


HERS is the industry standard by which a home’s energy efficiency is measured. It’s nationally recognized and is the most in-depth energy assessment for your home you will find. A typical resale home represents 130 on the HERS Index. The lower the HERS score, the higher the energy savings and the better the resale value of your home.


Your Smart Neighborhood home is equipped with the Carrier 16 SEER Heat Pump. Heat pumps move air from one place to another, saving you home on energy use. It’s a 2-in-1 HVAC system, providing year-round comfort with little maintenance. Clean the supply and return registers in your home and have a professional technician service it once a year for optimum performance.


Your Smart Neighborhood home is also equipped with the Rheem Heat Pump Water Heater. A heat pump water heater is the most efficient water heater on the market today and can cut the cost of heating water in half, saving the average homeowner up to $294 a year. There’s no pilot light to light – and relight. There are no fumes from gas or carbon monoxide, and no ventilation problems.
