Delivering Energy Efficient Homes to the Triangle Area


By participating in the Duke Energy Progress Residential New Construction Program, Poythress Construction is making a commitment to building better, more energy-efficient homes. Homes that qualify for the program achieve an additional 15-20% in energy savings beyond homes built to state building code requirements. 
Independent, nationally accredited Home Energy Rating System Raters verify that qualifying homes have low HERS Scores and include these important energy-saving features:

  • Increased insulation values
  • Tighter building shells
  • High-performance HVAC systems
  • High-efficiency windows
  • Low HERS Scores determine a home’s quality and energy efficiency. (The lower the score, the more efficient and better-built the home.) A standard new home in the Duke Energy Progress service territory scores 85. The high-performance homes that qualify for our Residential New Construction Program feature an average HERS Score between 70 and 55, as verified by an independent HERS Rater.

      Monthly savings – Homes achieve an additional 15 to 20% in energy efficiency beyond code minimums, resulting in energy bill savings month after month.
      Premier quality – The high design standards result in a higher-quality home that is built to last, providing comfort and savings for years to come.
      Enhanced comfort – Homes feature tighter construction, increased insulation, high-performance heating and cooling systems and high-efficiency windows – all working together to provide you with a consistently comfortable indoor environment.
