The October RESNET Builder of the Month is Capstone Homes. Capstone Homes is Northern Arizona’s largest homebuilder of new home communities of custom quality and custom production homes in Flagstaff and Prescott. Capstone Homes has been honored with Housing Innovation Awards by the Department of Energy and is an Energy Star Partner, Indoor airPLUS Partner and WaterSense Partner, all of which enlist a RESNET HERS® Rating. This month’s profile includes a selection of photos and an interview with Capstone Homes Marketing Manager Mary Norton. Norton says all of their production homes are HERS® rated, and they offer the same energy efficiency package for custom homes as well. Capstone Homes built 118 homes in 2018 and expect to build 150 homes in 2019. “Energy efficiency is at the forefront of today’s environmental concerns and is the future. Capstone Homes is pleased to be leading the call to action by building homes that are the highest level of energy efficiency available today resulting in savings, value and a better quality of life. Our HERS® Rated homes are less expensive to operate with lower utility bills, healthier to live in and provide superior quality.” Norton says that Capstone Homes achieve their impressive scores by having superior spray foam insulation, Energy Star appliances, low E windows, WaterSense water fixtures, tankless water heaters, and Indoor airPLUS features such as fresh air exchange energy recovery ventilators, low VOC paints, and materials. “When homebuyers learn of these features and the advantages of owning a HERS® Rated home by Capstone Homes, it is a realization of how their new home can benefit them from the moment they move-in, for as long as they live in the home and even at resale.” To view the feature, click here.
