“We are pleased to add such high-caliber employees to our staff,” says Todd Usher, president of Addison Homes, a company that builds all of its homes to rigorous ENERGY STAR® and EarthCraft House™ standards. “Despite the current downtrend in the housing market, we are busy building homes.”
Usher says the company is growing along with consumer awareness of how cost-effective it is to build toward maximum energy efficiency.
“Our clients appreciate long-term value, particularly in terms of dollars saved month after month on utility bills,” he says. “That’s why we now offer a Utility Bill Guarantee—a promise that our clients will pay less to heat and cool their homes … or we pay the difference.”
