Conway Corp names Rush-Hal Energy Smart Builder of the Year

Conway Corp has named Rush-Hal Properties the 2015 Energy Smart Builder of the Year for its dedication to building energy-efficient homes in the Conway community.

Energy Smart homes use less energy than standard-built homes and help save homeowners money and energy for years to come.   

Conway Corp recognized 19 homes built by Rush-Hal Properties as being Energy Smart in 2015. Rush-Hal has several additional homes that will meet Energy Smart standards planned for construction in the Salem Woods Subdivision in 2016.

“Rush-Hal Properties has been committed to building homes that meet or exceed Conway Corp Energy Smart criteria since the Energy Smart New Home program was developed in 2009,” said Conway Corp Major Accounts and Energy Efficiency Manager David Avra.

Energy Smart specifications are based on the United States Department of Energy recommendations. Energy Smart homes can save 20 to 30 percent in energy use over a standard built home thanks to a variety of energy-efficient features including insulation, high-performance windows, tight ducts and efficient heating and cooling equipment.

“The 19 Energy Smart homes built by Rush-Hal Properties in 2015 will save customers over $7,500 per home over its life expectancy,” Avra said.

Rush-Hal Properties began in 1990 as a partnership between Hal Crafton and Rush Harding III with the development of St. Charles Place.

“Building Energy Smart homes is a way for us to help our customers get the most out of their homes, we are proud to build to these standards,” said Crafton.
