New Construction

Building a new home is a major decision. Decisions and details in how your house is constructed and what products are used can make a world of difference in the performance of your new home. The Louisiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has defined a high performance home as: energy efficient (less expensive to own and operate), comfortable (no drafts or hot and cold spots), good indoor air quality (less dust, mold, etc.), quiet (less outdoor noise), long lasting (durable) (less moisture-induced rot), better for the Environment (causes less air and water pollution).

Living in a hot, humid climate presents a number of challenges in keeping our houses comfortable, durable and cost efficient. Over the years, our staff has gained experience and insight into the best energy efficiency practices particular to our region. Participating in current, hands-on energy efficiency projects and scientific research keeps us up-to-date with the most recent developments in the field. We use all of this information to help customers, like you, lower their utility bills while making their homes more comfortable and long-lasting.
