VIENNA, Va. (PRWEB) January 09, 2018
The Town of Vienna, Community Enhancement Commission and the Town Council recognized local builder, Evergreene Homes, and 34 of their homeowners for excellence in home energy efficiency. The ceremony was held Monday evening at the Council Chamber at Town Hall in Vienna.
As part of a program that encourages building homes that are more comfortable and have an overall lower impact on the environment, the Town of Vienna awarded the local builder because it achieved HERS scores of 70 or better on each of the 34 homes. Evergreene Homes has been consistently building homes that achieve an average HERS score of 55 as part of their commitment to home energy efficiency.
“We have been focused on energy efficiency since we first started building homes in Northern Virginia ten years ago,” said Robert Cappellini, President of Evergreene Homes. “We start every year seeking new ways to reduce our HERS score to improve our overall energy efficiency and to provide increased levels of homeowner comfort.”
The Home Energy Score, (HERS), is a national rating system developed by the U.S. Department of Energy. The Score reflects the energy efficiency of a home based on the efficiency of a home's overall design and the details related to air sealing, insulation, heating, cooling, and hot water systems. Evergreene Home’s average HERS score has beat even the Town of Vienna’s aggressive standards 15 points.
“Energy efficiency always comes standard in an Evergreene Home,” said Cappellini. “We strive to deliver homes that consume significantly less energy and dramatically reduces monthly utility costs for every Evergreene homeowner.”
Since 2007, Evergreene Homes has been building quality homes in Virginia, Maryland and on the Eastern Shore of Delaware. Evergreene Homes is a privately-owned company founded by industry veterans with a vision of making the homebuilding process more personalized and enjoyable for all involved.
Evergreene Homes believes the finest homes are distinguished by great locations, magnificent architecture, premium building materials and high-end finishes. The decades-long success also is attributed to quality craftsmanship, attention to detail, and designs that fit each homeowner’s needs and lifestyle. With this more personalized and detailed approach to homebuilding, Evergreene Homes is building friendships one home at a time.
