About Us

GreenHouseinCommunity_400x400Our homes are very important to us. They provide us with shelter, comfort, a place of belonging and safety.  We spend a significant portion of our lives in our homes, raising families and making memories.  In today’s busy world, our homes provide us with a place of security. We have enough to worry about in the outside world, we need our homes to be reliable.

Houses today are complex structures made up of a variety of working parts. Each of these components plays a specific role and has a significant impact on the quality of our home. Advancements in technology, research, innovation, and building practices make our homes safer, more comfortable, and more efficient. As a result, building codes are progressing to ensure our homes are built to today’s improved standards.

Just as you want your doctor to be up to date with the latest advancements in the medical field, wouldn’t you want the person responsible for constructing your home be aware of the latest in home building? The Home Energy Heroes represents a level of commitment from builders and various industry professionals to constructing safe, durable, and efficient homes.
