Building a home? Make it a Power Moves Home and save
If you’re thinking about building your own home, you’ve probably spent a lot of time figuring out the details. You’ve considered different floorplans to make sure you have enough closet space. You’ve selected complementary colors that pop in the summer and look great in the fall. Maybe you’ve even chosen your kitchen cabinetry. But have you considered energy efficiency?
If you haven’t, boy have we got some good news. The Power Moves Home program is perfect for anyone about to build their own home. We created this program to help homeowners achieve better energy efficiency—a benefit that will pay off for years to come.
Here’s what you need to know.
The Power Moves Home Triple Advantage
Why build to Power Moves Home standards? Because you’ll enjoy a triple benefit. Homes built to the program’s standards are on average 30 percent more energy efficient than a traditional home. That pays off in some pretty wonderful ways for homeowners.
First, there’s the energy efficiency: Your home will use less electricity when you build it to Power Moves Home standards. Which leads directly to the second benefit: Your home will cost less to live in. (After all, if you’re not using as much energy on heating and cooling, you won’t have to spend the money to pay for it, either.)
But best of all, when you build a Power Moves Home, you’ll be a lot more comfortable all year long. Instead of fighting with the thermostat every time the weather changes, you’ll enjoy more consistent temperatures while using less energy.
How to Get Started
If you want to build a Power Moves Home, it’s never to early to give us a call. The sooner we get involved, the sooner we can talk to your builder about the program requirements.
Once we’ve talked to your builder, we’ll assign a Home Energy Rating System® (HERS) rater to the project to verify that the program requirements are met before and during construction. Finally, once construction is done you’ll receive a full energy-efficiency report that includes your HERS rating.
From start to finish, this is a free service provided by your local electric cooperative, but you’re welcome to be involved every step of the way! Our goal is to make sure you end up with a home that doesn’t just look great—it works great, too.
