Green Building

Earning the HBA of Greater Cleveland’s Best Green Built Home in 2014 and 2012, Otero Signature Homes continues to set the standard for excellence in this area. These homes earn their designation through incorporating environmental considerations into every phase of the home building process. That means that during the design, construction, and operation of a home, energy and water efficiency, lot development, resource efficient building design and materials, indoor environmental quality, homeowner maintenance, and the home's overall impact on the environment are all taken into account.

We understand that every client is different, and we work closely with you to understand how you would like to incorporate green building practices into your home. We pride ourselves on offering energy efficient homes as our standard.

We work closely with RESNET (The Residential Energy Network) which helps builder’s construct the most energy-efficient homes as possible. RESNET trains and certifies professionals who can then audit homes and rate their energy efficiency using the HERS Index. The Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index is the industry standard by which a home's energy efficiency is measured. It’s also the nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating a home's energy performance. Our homes perform extremely well, scoring on average 50% more energy efficient than a standard new home and 80% for efficient than a resale home!
