When you build an energy-efficient home with CNC, it’s about more than lower utility bills. An energy-efficient home also indicates the quality of your home’s entire structure and systems. Plus, it will help establish your home as one of Central Oregon’s premiere builds. In a land that can be so dry yet bountiful life, we need to use our resources responsibly. 


Your Energy-Efficient Home

With over 50 years’ experience building homes in this region, CNC has more than a few different strategies to make your home as energy-efficient as possible. Here are our favorites:


ZIP Systems Sheathing

Weatherizing your home in Central Oregon’s temperamental climate can be a tall order. But with ZIP Systems sheathing, CNC adds an integrated layer and water-resistive barrier between your home and the elements outdoors. During the construction process, this extra layer of sheathing is installed underneath the exterior layers of your house so that high winds, chilling temperatures, and sheets of ice will do your home no harm. 


Smart Thermostats

Experts say that your custom home could be more energy-efficient if you lower the thermostat when you’re not at home. And the simplest way to regulate your home’s heat is through a smart thermostat.

Smart thermostats can adjust your heat usage throughout a given day. They can lower temps when you’re out and kick on the heat when you’re on your way home. These digital tools also learn from your behavior, show you your energy consumption, and can adjust the temperatures of your home based on the conditions outside. 


Earth Advantage Certified

At CNC, we believe our homes should embody a positive resolution towards greener homebuilding methods. It keeps things environmentally friendly and provides lasting impacts on the communities we build in for years to come. That’s why our custom homes are Earth Advantage certified. That means we use Zero Energy Ready Oregon standards that will help your home meet the region’s required Home Energy Scores. Not to mention, your home will set the example for how a home can and should be built for the future ahead. 


Energy Star Certified Appliances

Installing the very best Energy Star certified appliances can make sure your home is operating smoothly while using the least amount of energy possible. This saves you both money and energy. It’s a win-win. 


Benefits of a Custom Home

When you’re building a custom home, you get to choose how you want to do it the way you want to do it. From custom winter features and energy-efficient appliances to the right team, the crew at CNC will help you build your dream. And you get to promote a sustainable way of life. The best part is that your wallet will thank you for it in the end.
