The HERS Index scores buildings on a scale from zero to 100 where each point equals a 1% increase in energy consumption. The lower the number the better. For example, a home with an excellent HERS Index of 50 uses half of the energy used in a home with a HERS Index of 100.
For comparison, the average home built to the 2006 building code would get a HERS Index of 100.
✓Given the same building plans, two homes could be built to look exactly the same on the outside meeting all local codes and yet have vastly different HERS Index ratings because of the building science and infrastructure systems used in the home.
Based on independent third party ratings, Meyer Homes properties HERS Index built in the last three years average 36 and are in the top 3% of all ENERGY STAR qualified homes in the Midwest.
Meyer Homes can offer high quality homes at affordable prices because we pay close attention to the latest trends in building science then integrate the best ideas in the field when it makes sense.

What was terrific about working with Meyer Homes to redo our kitchen, was they ALWAYS did WHAT they said they'd do....and WHEN -- PRETTY DARN SPECIAL!! And did it graciously, efficiently, and beautifully! It doesn't get any better than that when you live there, and you have a major project going on in your home! Thank you Meyer Homes, and Crew!!
Over the years, we have used several different contractors for work on our home. Meyer Homes is not only the best, but stands far above the others, for many reasons. Their proposal was clear and carefully detailed, so that we knew what we would be getting. They introduced us to several new high-quality subcontractors and suppliers. They provided an unusual degree of personal participation, assuring coordination among the subcontractors. They negotiated on our behalf, saving us costs in several areas. I recommend them without hesitation.
Basement looks wonderful! Kids love it- so Brian & I love it even more!
Thanks for everything.
The basement project turned out fantastic. I will definitely use Meyer Homes for future projects as well as highly recommend to my friends.
Brad is professional, honest, and a sincere pleasure to work with. By all means, add my name to your referral list.
Lana & Brad,
We are loving our new MEYER home. Great getting to know you this past year and a half.
Thank you so very much.
Happy New Year,
Jen & Tom Schmit
After working with other builders I had a clear idea of how most of them work. I chose Brad for the quality of the homes I saw as well as his collaborative nature and his commitment to meeting my budget & timeline without sacrificing quality. He definitely delivered on his commitments and met my high expectations. Overall, I’m thrilled with our award-winning home!
When we decided to build, we braced for the kinds of horror story challenges that are par for the course with almost any other builder...but they never came. Not only did Meyer Homes build our dream house on time and under budget, but they made the experience downright enjoyable along the way. They balanced cost and quality, expert advice and listening, speed and attention to detail. We truly could not give them a higher recommendation.
Rob and Winnie Davis
When looking for a builder to build our home, we wanted to work with someone who we could trust.
We interviewed and viewed the work of several reputable builders. Ultimately we chose Brad because the of the quality of workmanship and the deep trust he built with his previous clients. We thoroughly enjoyed the building process and would not hesitate to recommend Meyer Homes.
Jim & Jan O'Brien
We are so happy in our new home!! We now live in a beautiful custom home with finishes that you would normally find in a million dollar home, but ours was affordable. We've been told by several friends that we live in a "Pinterest" house.
We've never built a house before but I've heard horror stories. Brad was incredibly easy to work with. If something wasn't exactly what we wanted, Brad continued to make changes until is was right and continues to do so. Even after we closed on the house and it's really no longer his to deal with, Brad has continued to tweak things if they need it.
I am not a technical person but the online tracker made communication with Brad very easy. It was a great system to stay on track and know what decisions needed to be made and when. We really don't intend to move from this home for many, many years but if we ever decided to build again, we would definitely want to work with Meyer Homes again.
We couldn’t be happier!
Jen & Cameron Hatten
We just wanted to let you know how much we absolutely love what you’ve done for our home! Our kitchen and master bath are admired by everyone that sees them! Working with you was an absolute pleasure, as you have defined yourself through a level of professionalism not many can match!
Our doors are always open to you if you haven’t completed your “final phase” photo collection...we also have many photos of the process along the way, if you find a need for them.
Thank you again for all of your hard work and patience with us through it all. We wish you & your family a Happy Thanksgiving,
Austin & Adrienne Johnson
One of the greatest compliments we can pay Meyer homes is continuing to be a repeat customer. We have had the pleasure of working with Brad on several projects over the years, from simple re-modeling jobs to complete transformations, and could not be any happier with the results. Brad’s hand-on approach and attention to detail is unmatched. Every project was completed on time, on budget and with the highest quality workmanship. If you are looking to build your custom dream home or just renovate your existing home, we strongly recommend working with Brad.
