It’s only 16 square feet larger than the subdivision minimum, but the Sunny Dream contains everything that the home owners desire.  With an Energy Star HER’s (Home Energy Rating) of 52, the home is projected to use 52% of the energy of another new home of the same size built to energy code minimums.

This performance is typical for most Sun Plans where the home owners follow our Custom Energy Recommendations AND have field verification by a third party Home Energy Rater, not the builder. This is a requirement for Energy Star home certification.

The passive solar design, along with attention to insulation and HVAC design, provide these savings. Some home owners desire to reduce the purchased energy even further by adding active solar – hot water or photovoltaic panels on the roof.
