From advanced framing to innovative insulating techniques, you can rest assured that your home is built to last and to save you money. That's what Energy Pro is all about!
What to Expect in a Fortress Energy Pro Home:
Every Fortress home is rigorously tested by a 3rd party company and receives a certified HERS rating. HERS (Home Energy Rating System) is the industry standard by which a home's energy efficiency is measured.
On the HERS scale, the lower your rating, the better! A lower number equals higher savings and a more energy efficient home.
