Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficiency as a Priority

Falk Construction Inc. is committed to building homes and commercial projects that aren’t just attractive and well built, but are as energy efficient as possible as well.  That’s why we put energy efficiency first as a standard practice.

An impact feature that sets us apart is our superior HVAC system, with a 96% Carrier furnace and a 16 steer AC unit with custom ductwork that is specifically engineered for each home.

After all the systems are installed we mastic all of our ducts to ensure limited air infiltration which also drastically reduces the amount of dust in the home. Our systems are inspected by a third party inspector to ensure your home works as a system so every room in the house is as comfortable as the next. Standard Features in our home include:

  • On Demand Tankless Water Heater System
  • Upgraded Amsco Vinyl Windows w/Unique Vantage Insulated Glass Unit/Maximum Performance U Factor/Low-E Glass On Two Surfaces/Five Colors To Choose From.
  • Insulation On Our 2x6 Exterior Walls Are R-23 Blown-In Fiberglass/ Attic At Living Are Spaces Are R-49 Blown-In Fiberglass. Basement Furred 2x4 Walls Are R-15 Fiberglass Blown-In.
  • Insulated Garage Overhead Doors.
  • Energy Rated HERS Scored Home.
  • 96% Furnace & 16 Seer AC Unit

More Value

By considering mechanical and HVAC systems from the very start of the design process and by using smart, energy efficient materials and ensuring quality sealing and insulation, our buildings represent a great value that will save you money in the long term.

Lower HERS Score

In order to maximize energy efficiency we utilize the HERS score. As a nationally recognized system for calculating energy performance, a low HERS score means substantially lower energy costs for homeowners.

HERS scores are calculated by a certified inspector who has been specially trained to estimate energy efficiency and project heating and cooling costs. A few of the areas that they examine include:

  • Exterior walls, both above and below grade
  • Floors over unconditioned spaces
  • Ceilings and roofs
  • Attics, foundations and crawlspaces
  • Windows and doors
  • Vents and ductwork
  • HVAC and water heating systems

Once the inspector takes measurements and compiles a report, they assign a HERS rating to the home. Our goal is to create as energy efficient a home or building as the design allows for.
