Whole Home Certification

Whole Home is the set of green building standards that go into every new M/I home. We take the local building code and the standards outlined in Energy Star, then we extend them with our own standards. The result is an independently certified home that's cost efficient, clean, green and healthy. Our Whole Home standards save our homeowners money and improve the quality of life year "Ëśround. How do we know they save our homeowners money? They're independently tested and earn a Home Energy Rating System score...or HERS index that's used to calculate estimated monthly energy savings.
