Lowering energy costs relieves pressure on your family budget, conserves resources and fosters a more sustainable lifestyle. It’s easy to see just how much you can save with a hauSmart home.
The Mungo Performance Guide (MPG)
Just look for the Mungo Performance Guide (MPG) posted at every hauSmart home (and online). The MPG is unique to every hauSmart home, and includes both a HERS rating and Average Annual Energy Savings.
A. HERS Rating
This home rates an excellent 68. It is 32% more efficient than a new code-built home and even more efficient than an existing home.
B. Average Annual Savings
This number represents the estimated annual energy savings for a hauSmart home when compared to a new code-built home. Savings compared to older homes are much higher. Actual energy savings will vary depending on individual usage habits, number of residents in the home, and fluctuation in rates by your utility company.
Each and every new home is tested by an independent third-party inspector. The HERS rating and Average Annual Energy Savings are unique for each hauSmart home.
What is a HERS rating?
The HERS (Home Energy Rating Systems) rating provides a standardized evaluation of a home's energy efficiency and average energy savings.
On the HERS scale – just like a golf score – lower numbers are better. While a typical new code-built home merits a HERS rating of 100, energy efficient hauSmart homes feature much lower ratings and therefore, more energy savings. Savings over an existing home are even higher!

Disclaimer: Each new Mungo Homes is tested by Home Energy Group, a third-party independent inspector who calculates the HERS ratings. Average Annual Energy Savings are those compared to a new code-built home. Savings compared to an older home may be much higher. Actual energy savings vary depending on individual usage habits, number of residents in the home, and fluctuation of rates by your utility company.
