At Providence Homes, we are outperforming the other builders who say they are green or build energy efficient homes. Our homes are on average 33% more efficient than a home built to code today. What separates Providence Homes from the other builders? The answer is, using the latest technology, third party testing and third party certification for every home.
One of the ways Providence Homes is leading the way in building beautiful designed energy efficient homes in the Jacksonville marketplace is we include a conditioned attic system featuring foam insulation, in every home we build. By removing the ventilation from the attic space and spraying air-tight foam insulation under the roof deck, the attic stays within 3 to 8 degrees of the indoor temperature year-round.
This means your air conditioning system works less, since all of the ducts are located in a conditioned space, providing you with a cleaner, healthier, more energy efficient home. In our exclusive "Behind the Walls" tour you can see first-hand some of systems, designs and practices that we use to build our 100% Energy Star Certified homes.

The HERS Index Score is the one number that tells you how energy efficient a home really is. Like a MPG label for homes, it lets you comparison shop for homes based upon energy performance, the same way you can for appliances and cars. The HERS Index is now the national standard for measuring a home's energy efficiency that is recognized by the Department of Energy (DOE), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the U.S. mortgae industry. The HERS Index Score is a required on all Energy Star Certfied Homes. So if you want to know more about a home's energy efficiency before you purchase it, ask for the HERS Index Score!
