“It has been a full calendar year since our “Trenton” model Energy Smart home was built by Kevco Builders. The total electric energy cost for the year was $838.36. That came out to $2.30 per day not including taxes. We are in awe of this design and it is the most livable home we have ever owned.”
– The Crawford’s
Kevco Builders, Lake County’s most award winning custom homebuilder, offers the area’s first pre-drawn, high performance home plan collection which combines luxury design with energy-saving technology.
Kevco has partnered with “Energy Smart Homes” to offer energy efficient residential home construction that, when built to specifications, consumes an impressive 40-50% less energy than other standard built-to-code new homes, and without significant increase in construction costs.
Utilizing specifically engineered plans, Kevco’s energy efficient homes feature air conditioning and heating equipment, along with duct work, designed within the actual living space of the home and not in the attic space, through which standard A/C systems circulate air, which can get up to 30 degrees warmer.
If you are among the growing number of homeowners who put a premium on the importance and benefits of energy conscious construction, view our extensive library of Energy Smart Home plans. Or, perhaps we can bring an energy efficient approach to one of our traditional custom floor plans that catches your eye.
Kevco Builders was the first builder in Lake County to offer the Energy Smart Homes library of home construction plans. We believe these plans are so efficient, we’ll guarantee your power bill for 12 months!*
