New Homes in Savage MN

Key Land Leader in Net-Zero Energy Homes

Key Land Homes is proud to be a leader in the path to net-zero energy homes. That means striving to build truly energy-efficient homes that save owners hundreds of dollars in utility costs and also reduce tons of carbon emissions to help the environment. Our desire to build these kinds of Lakeville MN homes has resulted in us being nationally recognized and ranked by RESNET, the Residential Energy Services Network.

In fact, we are currently rated number 13 nationally among builders with an average HERS rating index below 50! To understand just how important this is and how big an honor, it might help to know that the Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index is the industry standard by which a home’s energy efficiency is measured. It’s also the nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating a home’s energy performance. The U.S. Department of Energy has determined that a typical resale home scores 130 on the HERS Index while a standard new home is awarded a rating of 100.

We are among the pioneer builders who built over 50 homes that had the lowest average HERS Index Scores. Our average HERS Index is already under 50 and we’re aiming for net-zero energy homes as we continue to build.

According to RESNet, these energy-efficient homes “save their families an average of $750 a year in utility costs and reduce annually an average of 4.39 tons of carbon emissions aiding the environment.” We’re thrilled to have had a HERS average of 48.3 this past year and will continue to build homes that not only save money and help the environment, but also make the homes ultimately more comfortable for the people who live there. The better a home is built, the more comfortable and efficient it will be.

If you’d like to learn more about our building practices and how we continue to strive for lower HERS Index scores, contact us today and see how easy it is to have a home that is both beautiful, spacious, thoughtfully designed, and energy efficient. All you need to do is choose Key Land Homes for your Lakeville MN homes.
