Conway Corp has named Kevin Watson of Watson Homes and Tom Watson of Tom Watson Construction the 2018 Energy Smart Builders of the Year for their dedication to building energy-efficient homes in the Conway community.
Energy Smart homes use less energy than standard-built homes and help save homeowners money and energy for years to come.
Conway Corp recognized 25 homes built by Watson Homes and Tom Watson Construction as being Energy Smart in 2018. The builders currently have nine Energy Smart homes under construction including seven in the Robynmar Subdivision – a 45-lot development being built exclusively by Watson Homes and Tom Watson Construction.
“Kevin and Tom have been committed to building homes that meet or exceed Conway Corp Energy Smart criteria since the Energy Smart New Home program was developed in 2009,” Conway Corp Major Accounts and Energy Efficiency Manager David Avra said.
Energy Smart specifications are based on the United States Department of Energy recommendations. Energy Smart homes can save 20 to 30 percent energy use over a standard built home thanks to a variety of energy-efficient features including insulation, high-performance windows, tight ducts and efficient heating and cooling equipment.
“More than 900 Energy Smart homes have been built since the program began in 2009 with an estimated accumulative energy savings to the homeowners of more than a million dollars over the life of the program,” Avra said.
