Conway Corp names Energy Smart Builder of the Year
Conway Corp has named Jacob Longing Construction the 2017 Energy Smart Builder of the Year for their 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 23 homes built by Jacob Longing Construction as being Energy Smart in 2017. They currently have seven more Energy Smart homes under construction.
“Jacob Longing Construction has been committed to building homes that have met or exceeded Conway Corp’s Energy Smart criteria,” Conway Corp Major Accounts and Energy Efficiency Manager David Avra said.
Energy Smart specifications are based on the United States Department of Energy recommendations. Energy Smart homes can save 20 to 30 percent 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.
“More than 745 Energy Smart homes have been built since the program began in 2009 with an estimated accumulative energy savings to the homeowners of more than $853,000,” Avra said.
Jacob Longing Construction is owned by Jacob Longing, a Conway High School and University of Central Arkansas graduate.
“Building quality, energy smart homes is important to my clients,” Longing said. “I strive to build them the most energy efficient homes possible to help keep utility costs down and potentially increases their resale value.”
