Hover over the points to see the many layers of what makes Baessler Homes Energy Efficient. 

Advanced Framing

Advanced framing is an efficient technique that minimizes lumber use by strategically spacing and aligning framing members. This approach optimizes structural integrity, reduces waste, and contributes to cost-effective and sustainable building practices.

Low-E Windows

Low-E windows have a thin, nearly invisible coating that controls heat transfer by reflecting infrared light. This enhances energy efficiency, regulates indoor temperatures, and protects against UV damage to furnishings.

Tankless Water Heater

A tankless water heater provides energy efficiency, on-demand hot water, and space savings, making it a cost-effective and convenient solution for homeowners.

LED Light Fixtures

LED light fixtures are energy-efficient due to their ability to convert a higher percentage of electrical energy into visible light, resulting in reduced power consumption and longer operational lifespans.

High Efficiency Furnance

A high-efficiency furnace maximizes energy efficiency by utilizing advanced technology to extract more heat from the combustion process, resulting in lower fuel consumption and reduced energy waste.

Innovative Attic Design

Advanced attic designs are energy-efficient as they incorporate superior insulation, proper ventilation, and airtight sealing, reducing heat transfer and enhancing overall energy conservation in homes.

Climate Comfort Insulation

R-23 insulation is energy efficient because it provides a higher thermal resistance, reducing heat transfer and enhancing the insulation barrier in homes, resulting in improved energy conservation and lower utility costs.

Water Resistant Barrier

Weather-resistant barriers on homes are energy-efficient by preventing water infiltration, reducing the risk of structural damage and mold, while also enhancing insulation, promoting temperature regulation, and lowering heating and cooling costs.

Your Questions



What is an energy efficient home?

An energy-efficient home is designed and built to minimize energy consumption while maximizing performance and comfort. These homes often adhere to modern building codes and incorporate advanced technologies, materials, and practices that reduce waste and optimize energy usage. Key features include effective insulation, high-efficiency HVAC systems, energy-efficient appliances, sealed ductwork, and smart home technologies. The goal is to create a sustainable living space that not only reduces environmental impact but also results in lower utility costs for homeowners over the long term.


How is a new construction home more energy efficient than an preowned home?

New construction homes excel in energy efficiency, adhering to modern building codes and incorporating advanced insulation, sealed ductwork, and energy-efficient technologies. Equipped with high-efficiency HVAC systems and solar readiness, these homes offer superior eco-friendly features compared to pre-owned homes. While upgrades can enhance the efficiency of existing homes, the holistic integration of cutting-edge technologies and materials in new construction typically ensures a more energy-conscious living environment.


What is a HERS rating?

The HERS (Home Energy Rating Systems) rating serves as a standardized assessment of a home's energy efficiency and anticipated energy savings. A lower HERS rating indicates greater energy efficiency. A conventional code-built home typically has a HERS rating of 100. An independent third party calculates and assigns the rating, inspecting and assessing each new Baessler Home giving us a HERS rating of 58.


What is weather resistant barriers?

Weather-resistant barriers on homes provide essential protection against external elements, preventing water damage, mold, and structural issues. They enhance energy efficiency, regulate temperatures, and reduce heating and cooling costs. Overall, these barriers contribute to prolonged structural integrity and lower maintenance expenses while ensuring a comfortable living environment.


Why have a tankless water heater?

Opting for a tankless water heater brings notable benefits, including energy efficiency through on-demand heating, space-saving design, and continuous hot water supply, resulting in cost savings and a more environmentally friendly solution.
