Certified High Performance Homes
A Certified High Performance Home is built by a HIGH QUALITY BUILDER that undergoes continuous training in climate zone specific building science, current best practices and the HERS INDEX. Certified High Performance Homes are DESIGNED to use at least 35% less energy than the average similar new home and 50% less energy than a similar existing home. In addition to using LESS ENERGY to lower operating costs and reduce environmental impacts, Certified High Performance Homes are built to have better air quality, durability and comfort.
Made up of Omaha area builders, vendors and suppliers, the Certified High Performance Home Program is developing the future for energy ratings in this region. Our mission is to provide a positive open environment for the new home construction industry in the Omaha metropolitan area. As a builder directed organization, we strive to work with all facets of the building industry from city halls, to suppliers, to subcontractors, to real estate agents & buyers, to government organizations, etc. By bringing these facets together we form a unified group to move us forward with this energy saving initiative.
