How do we Measure

HOW DO WE MEASURE OUR PERFORMANCE

 

Energy Star Certification

  • Morningstar Homes has been building all of it’s homes (all communities) to comply with and be certified to the Energy Star Program
  • Home is inspected and Certified by an independent third party
    • Framing inspection
    • Blower door testing
  • Rating system is the “HERS” system
    • Home Energy Rating System
    • HERS is a national standard
    • Recognized locally by appraisers (homes typically appraise at higher values then homes not certified)
    • Like Golf, the lower the HERS score the better
      • 70 or lower is our target goal on all homes
      • This score means that this home can be 30% more efficient then a NEW HOME  that just meets the minimum building code insulation and construction standards
      • This score means that this home can be potentially 50-60% more efficient than a 10 year old used home

      Green Home Certification

  • Morningstar Homes offers “Green Certification” on any home that a client choses. All homes in the community of Briar Chapel are Green Certified
  • Home is Certified to the NAHB Research Center national Green standards
    • Home is inspected by an independent third party
    • Framing inspection
    • Final inspection
  • Rating system is based on the following:
    • Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum

CUSTOMER FEEDBACK

  • While some might argue that customer feedback is not a good measure of your performance, we think it is, quite frankly, the most important measure.

 

  • We are proud of our performance with our clients and will be happy to introduce you to our past clients and let them share their thoughts with you about our performance

PEACE OF MIND

  • We also feel that Peace of Mind is an important component of a high performance home and to that end, we offer a 10 Year limited Structural warranty on all of our homes.
