Energy Efficiency

One of the most important aspects of a G. Morris Home is energy efficiency. We want to build a custom home that not only saves you money during construction, but for years after. Energy efficiency is a core principle of our building philosophy, and each one of our homes is built to meet or exceed today’s rigorous energy standards. We have a certified Energy Rater and Consultant model and inspect each one of our homes in order to guarantee that your new home does exactly that. This is in stark contrast to many other Builders that will opt for a self-certification form and outdated methods.  Rest assured, when building with G. Morris Homes, you are doing your part to protect the environment, while also benefiting from monthly utility savings.
