Key Land Homes is the August 2021 RESNET HERS® Index Builder of the Month. In 2020, Key Land Homes achieved one of the lowest average HERS® scores (48.3) in the country for a builder completing more than 50 homes. Key Land Homes Department Manager Tom Schutz shared some insight on building HERS® homes for their customers. “Anytime someone today asked about what a quality home looks like or feels like, we can point to the HERS® rating of the home as one of those features. It is easy for most to provide a picture-perfect home on the surface, but once you get into the walls and structure of the home is where the true quality belongs. A strong HERS® rating helps builders and homeowners alike understand and realize the quality of that structure for not only energy efficiency but for peace of mind.” He continued, “The HERS® rating and the inspection services we utilize help us look for opportunities in which we might improve or call out areas in which we may have overlooked. But most importantly, we know that building a quality home will provide us with a deep appreciation of homeowner satisfaction. The greatest compliment that we receive from our homeowners is that positive review of our company and knowing that a family will make many happy memories in a Key Land Home.” Key Land Homes is a Designated Green Path Builder, a leader in energy-efficient construction, per the Minnesota Green Path Standards from Housing First Minnesota.
