Categories: Uncategorized | Posted: March 17, 2022

Legacy Homes is known for being your premier custom home builder in Huntsville, Madison, Athens and surrounding areas. It’s because we offer many options when it comes to our floor plans, communities, and design center. Adding to that list, our homes are also built with energy efficiency in mind. Learn more below about our strides to go green, and give you an energy efficient home that you will love for years to come.

 

Energy Efficient Homes

There is nothing that will save you more money than having a certified Energy Right home, this is why it’s a top priority for us here at Legacy Homes. We want to build energy efficient homes to help you save on electric bills, improve your level of comfort, make your home more quiet and healthier, and help our environment. We use the latest technology and building techniques to deliver this, without having to sacrifice style and elegance that you expect.

 

A Closer Look

Energy costs, including electric bills, seem to continue to rise and rise. Which means homebuyers are starting to pay closer attention to energy efficiency in homes before they decide to buy. Our homes are 60% more energy efficient than an already existing used home, and 30% more efficient than other standard energy efficient homes. Here’s why:

 

  • Advanced Framing Techniques
  • Improved Insulation That Reduces Internal Leaks and Drafts
  • Energy Star Rated Low-E Windows
  • High SEER-Rated HVAC Equipment That Stimulates Fresh Air Ventilation & Reduces Energy
  • Energy Star Rated Appliances.

 

Legacy Homes is the only locally operated TVA Energy Right Platinum Builder and the distinction of being a National RESNET Energy Smart Builder. Every one of our homes is inspected, certified and given a score on the Home Energy Rating Systems (HERS). The HERS rating system is the industry standard by which a home’s energy efficiency is measured. It’s also a nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating the energy performance in a home. See the Home Energy Rating System below.
