Today is National New Home Owners Day and we would like to congratulate the Prickel family on their new Touchstone Energy Home!
Building a new home can be quite a task. There are so many decisions to make along the way! But one of the best decisions you can make is to spend the extra money to upgrade to meet the standards of a Touchstone Energy Home, which features some of the most energy-efficient, building-comfort guidelines in the new home/remodeling industry.
Why Should I Choose the Touchstone Energy Home Program?
It’s simple, really. Over time, building codes and common practices among builders and contractors made yesterday’s “energy-efficient” home today’s standard model. Your local Touchstone Energy Cooperative wanted to reward its members for exceeding the ordinary and, at the same time, link everything with the Touchstone Energy connection among electric utility systems around the country.
- More energy efficient
- Less expensive to operate
- Cleaner and safer
- More comfortable
- Better for the environment
Your REMC has long placed a priority on energy efficiency, and its members appreciate the effort. Recent surveys confirm customers are overwhelmingly in support of the benefits of a well-insulated, electrically heated home.
How Much Can I Save?
As with any home, energy consumption will vary based on the usage patterns and habits of individuals. However, everything being equal, by moving up to the Touchstone Energy Home standards, a family can expect their energy consumption to be considerably less than that of a traditional built home.
How do I find out more?
Information on the Touchstone Energy Home is as close as your local REMC. If you’d like to find out more, contact Jarred Meinders at Southeastern Indiana REMC, 800-737-4111 ext. 224.
