Conway Corp has named Rush-Hal Building Management the 2019 Energy Smart Builder 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 more than 30 homes built by Rush-Hal as being Energy Smart in 2019 with an additional 10 homes under construction currently.
“Rush-Hal has 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 plus efficient heating and cooling equipment.
“More than 1,000 Energy Smart homes have been built since the program began with an estimated energy savings to the homeowners of more than $1.6 million dollars annually,” Avra said.
Rush-Hal Properties began in 1990 as a partnership between Hal Crafton and Rush Harding III with the development of St. Charles Place.
“Building Energy Smart homes is a way for us to help our customers get the most out of their homes,” Crafton said. “We are proud to build to these standards.”
