Energy Saving Features

Did you know?
Every new Eastwood Home is tested and rated using the Home Energy Rating System Index, or HERS. Your new Eastwood Home will come with an Energy $avings Certificate indicating the annual cost and energy savings produced by the home. This value is calculated based on careful analysis of the home construction plans and detailed on-site inspections performed by RESNET, the Residential Service Network!

Each one-point decrease in the HERS Index equates to a 1% reduction in energy consumption, so the lower the score, the more efficient your home is. Expect your new Eastwood Home to provide significant  savings over many new other new homes and especially over homes built as little as 5 years ago!

Efficient Duct and HVAC Systems
Sealed ducts help deliver conditioned air more effectively and permit the heating and cooling system to operate with less effort. 

Tightly Sealed Exterior and Effective Insulation
Sealing a home's exterior helps reduce drafts, dust, and pollen. Properly installed insulation helps to reduce energy consumption, improve overall comfort, and minimize indoor temperature variability. 

Low E Windows
Windows help save energy through the use of one or more advanced technologies, such as low-emissivity (low-e) coatings. 

Green Building Practices
Using local suppliers and recycled materials in construction to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. 

Water Conservation
Water-efficiency measures can reduce water and sewage costs by up to 30%. The engineering of low-flow faucets, shower heads, and toilets reduces water usage. The environmental benefits include increased water supply to local streams, wetlands, and their natural inhabitants. 

Independent Review
With the help of independent Home Energy Raters, we choose the most appropriate energy-saving features for our homes. Additionally, raters conduct on site testing and inspections of all homes to verify the energy efficient measures, as well as insulation, air tightness and duct sealing details.

It's important your builder understand this flow to prevent air leakage within the home. After all, air leaking in or out of your home can greatly affect your energy bills!
