Energy Efficient Model Home

CHERRY VALLEY (WIFR) -- A local contractor is trying to reel in buyers by offering a home that could cut down on our utility bills.

Jason Wigget Construction, partnering with e2residential, recently finished its model home, which is 50 percent more efficient than a traditionally built new home.

The company says it can save the homeowner $1,995 in annual energy costs.

Using e2residential's patent pending building system, the home conserves energy by holding in the heat and cool air with its insulation.

Wigget also says his homes are great for people with allergies because it can also clean the air through the filters in the ventilation system.

"We have a pretty good handle on what everything is, we know how to explain it and we know we have a really good product," said Wigget. "We know that it's superior to what's sitting out there now so we're pretty confident."

The model home will be open for the public to see every Saturday and Sunday 1-4 p.m. throughout July.
