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.
