Certified Comfort Home

The Certified Comfort Home Program is designed for members who are building a new home that is energy efficient. Tri-County will help members design a new home that is very energy efficient and comfortable. A heat loss/gain will be calculated from the member's blueprints and the home will be rated. As the home is being built Tri-County representatives inspect the home to make sure the energy efficient qualities are incorporated in the home.

After the home is completed Tri-County will tell the homeowner the estimated annual heating and cooling kilowatt hours AND guarantee the heating and cooling usage for a three-year period. If the yearly usage exceed the guarantee, Tri-County will refund the difference to the homeowner.

Call and ask for the Member Services Department at 1-800-244-5151 or 244-5151 for more information or click here to e-mail a request for information.
