All Jimmy Nash Homes are constructed to minimize energy consumption and keep our communities as energy efficient as possible. Our goal is to build homes that are low maintenance and have a low impact on our communities and their wonderful natural resources. Jimmy Nash Homes chooses each product going into our homes to ensure both a sensitivity to the environment as well as meeting our stringent standards for efficiency.
Jimmy Nash Homes builds responsibly with respect to the environment by:
• Managing site recycling
• Selecting sustainable building materials

From lot preparation and building processes to interior planning and materials selection, Jimmy Nash Homes thinks energy efficiency at every turn. With this level of dedication and planning, every Jimmy Nash Home contributes to the creation of more sustainable neighborhoods by minimizing environmental impact.
We strive to provide proof to homeowners that their Jimmy Nash Home will offer energy efficiencies on a daily basis. Jimmy Nash Homes hold excellent resale value. The energy efficiencies, advanced engineering and quality of materials motivate buyers because of their short and long-term benefits. From lower utility bills and better indoor quality to minimized pollution and overall environmental friendliness, it’s the value that Jimmy Nash Homes sustain.
Every Jimmy Nash Home is a HERS Rated Home. A HERS (Home Energy Rating System) rating is determined by a certified RESNET (Residential Energy Services Network) assessor who analyzes the construction plans and performs an on-site inspection of the home. Before you close on your new home, an inspector will calculate your new home’s energy performance on the HERS Index. This nationally recognized system has become the industry standard for measuring a home’s energy efficiency.
The lower the HERS rating, the more energy efficient the home’s performance. All HVAC equipment sizing and duct work of every new Jimmy Nash home is carefully calculated for each home plan and each piece is carefully sealed to ensure that conditioned air is delivered as effectively as possible.
Some of the variables included in a HERS energy rating are:
• All exterior walls (both above and below grade)
• Floors over unconditioned spaces (like garages)
• Ceilings and roofs
• Attics, foundations and crawlspaces
• Windows and doors, vents and ductwork
• HVAC systems, water heating systems and thermostats
Every Jimmy Nash home incorporates environmental considerations and resource efficiency into every step of the building process to minimize environmental impact. The design, construction and operation of each energy efficient Jimmy Nash home must focus on:
• Energy and water efficiency
• Resource efficient building design and materials
• Indoor environmental quality
• Taking the home’s overall impact on the environment into account
Some of the short-term benefits of energy efficient homes include:
• Lower energy bills
• Reduced water consumption
• Lower water bills
• Lower home maintenance costs
• Healthier homes – better indoor air quality
