June’s Builder of the Month is Musser Home Builders, a family-owned and operated custom builder in Pennsylvania. In this month’s feature, we asked Charlotte Little of Musser Home Builders to share some insight on building HERS® homes for their customers. “A HERS® rating allows us to gauge our level of energy performance against the building code requirements. We provide our clients with this third-party documentation that shows that their homes will outperform the industry standards by about 50%.” She adds, “A HERS® rating has a direct impact on the overall cost of home ownership. We feel the long-term cost of home ownership is of more importance than the first cost. The HERS® rating demonstrates how their home will perform. Every buyer should be aware of HERS® ratings and request the results before buying a new home”. “Our clients LOVE their HERS® rated homes. We often get feedback about the indoor comfort and low energy bills that they experience.” Read more of the profile here.
