What is a "High Performance" Home
High Performance Homes are Green Homes. Our High Performance Homes are HERS Certified. Energy Conservation is a big part, but not the only thing (see insert). A High Performance Home goes through a total evaluation of the home during construction. A Renaissance Builders "High Performance" Home is designed and built to be a better home from start to finish. High Performance Homes will cost more, but the amount is quickly paid back with less maintenance and lower energy cost. You should expect a 40%-60% reduction in energy cost over a typical New Construction Home.
