Oklahoma builder Homes by Taber is the March 2021 RESNET HERS Builder of the Month. On the company website, they refer to their homes are “proudly overbuilt”, and had an average HERS Score of 40.1 in 2020. In this month’s feature, we asked Lindsay Haltom, Marketing Director at Homes By Taber, to share some insight on building HERS homes for their customers. Haltom says that when consumers are searching for a home, asking for the HERS rating is an easy question to help to quickly narrow down their search. “It can also allow them to properly budget for their future expenses by knowing their HERS rating. Our HERS ratings save our homeowners around $1,500 per year in energy bills, which for our customers typically equates to a mortgage payment a year.” Homes by Taber proudly markets their HERS scores whenever and wherever possible. “To start, HERS score certificates are posted on the entryway wall of every model home to showcase how the floor plans scores on the Index. When construction on a home gets completed, we provide the HERS rating certificates to our homeowners, so they know the score of their specific home. This certificate and score also come in handy when customers may decide to sell their homes in the future. Future homeowners should find this as a selling feature and helps with resale.” Read more of the profile here.
