Double R Builders has achieved Certified Energy Star ratings.
“Energy Star is a joint program of the U.S. Department of Energy helping us all save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices.” To earn an Energy Star rating, the home must “meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the EPA and the U.S. Department of Energy.”
Creating an Energy Star home starts in the planning stage. Consideration must be given to such things to name a few as the orientation of the house to the sun, the choice of insulation, the size and type of windows and doors, the energy rating of the appliances and water heater, even down to the light bulbs that will be used. (See the list of energy features in the Lakeway Custom and the Villas homes.)
Here is what the engineer had to say…
Double R Builders’ homes remain the best built homes I have tested. With 14618 Mansfield Dam at The Villas at Commander’s Point, they achieved a personal best building 36% better than modern code.
This (Lakeway Custom home) is one of the best houses I have ever tested. It was built 30% better than modern code requires.
