The September 2023 RESNET® HERS® Index Builder of the Month is Thoroughbred Custom Homes of Prosper, Texas. Thoroughbred Custom Homes leads the way as North Texas’ premier luxury custom home-building specialist. Being a close-knit family-owned and operated builder, every home they build is done with passion and a commitment to excellence, treating each one as if it were their own. In this month’s feature, we asked Thoroughbred Custom Homes President, Evan Kozak to share some insight on building HERS® homes for their customers. Kozak says, “With a HERS®-rated home, homeowners are not required to be an expert in insulation, air sealing, or HVAC to understand how well their home will perform. The HERS® rating is simple and easy to understand, providing homeowners with a way to compare their homes with the industry standard and other similar homes. He adds, “Energy-efficient homes are frequently looked at from a cost savings perspective, and that is important, however, there is more to it. Homes that are built tighter, with better insulation and high-efficiency appliances also provide the occupants with a more comfortable and healthier home as well.” He concludes, “Time and time again we witness our clients getting excited when we send them the HERS® Index report upon completion of their home. It provides reaffirmation of their decision to build their custom home with us. They also feel a sense of confidence that they will enjoy a comfortable, energy-efficient home for years to come.” Read the full Thoroughbred Custom Homes profile here.
