Are you interested in energy efficient homes in Reno and Sparks? Ventana by Ryder Homes uses the HERS (Home Energy Rating System) index to measure its home energy consumption comparative to other communities and existing houses. This index, in use over 20 years, is a standard of both the U.S. Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency. A new home in compliance with the 2006 International Energy Conservation Code (Ventana is built to the 2009 Code) should rate 100 on the HERS index scale. A home rating 80 is 20% more energy efficient.
With Ventana you’ll save energy and money and your home will be more comfortable and durable. Now is a good time to look into a renewable energy system that can provide electricity, water heating or space heating and cooling.
