Increase Energy Savings
Building an energy efficient home is a top priority for us. Nothing will save you more money over time than having a certified Energy Right home. This helps to reduce energy bills and improve comfort, all while protecting the environment. By using the latest technology and building techniques, we are able to accomplish this without sacrificing the style and elegance of the home you expect from us.
The Lower Your HERS Score, the Better!
With energy costs continuing to rise, homebuyers are looking more closely at a home's energy performance before deciding to buy. Legacy Homes are up to 30% more energy-efficient than a standard energy efficient new home and 60% more efficient than an existing used home!
Legacy Homes is a TVA Energy Right® Platinum Builder and the only locally-operated builder to have the distinction of being a National RESNET® Energy Smart Builder. Every home is inspected, certified, and receives a HERS® Score (Home Energy Rating System). The HERS Index is the industry standard by which a home's energy efficiency is measured and is a nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating a home's energy performance. Here's a few of the things we do to to create a better built, energy-efficient home that's quieter, healthier, more comfortable, and saves you money.
- 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 and reduces energy
