We've Changed the Way Homes are Built!

Developed exclusively by Mungo Homes, hauSmart quickly became the standard in new home construction, and other builders quickly followed with their own versions. hauSmart, which lead to Mungo's recognition as the 2012 National Green Advocate of the Year, ensures that your new home is built to the strictest standards of energy-efficiency using the latest materials and construction techniques, so that your home is more affordable to operate and comfortable to live in.

The Mungo Performance Guide (MPG)

You would't buy a new car without knowing the average miles per gallon or the annual fuel cost. Similarly, you should't buy a new home without knowing the energy-efficiency. Look for the Mungo Performance Guide (MPG) posted in every hauSmart home—typically found on the panel box located in the garage or laundry room. The MPG is unique to every hauSmart home, and includes both a HERS rating and Average Annual Energy Savings.

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 a used home are even higher!

Looking at the example above: Because of our construction techniques and energy-efficient building materials, this home rates an excellent 66. That means that it is 34% more efficient than other new code-built homes and even more efficient than a used 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, used 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.

C. Address

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.
