ENERGY STAR Certification

Energy Star Home CertificationHomes that earn the ENERGY STAR(ES) Home designation must meet the EPA's guidelines for energy efficiency. Homes that qualify for the ES designation are 15% more efficient than homes built to the International Residential Code.

These homes usually have several energy efficient features, including more effective insulation, air-tight construction and ductwork, high performance windows and doors, efficient heating/cooling systems and Energy Star lighting and appliances. 

Our building performance specialists will work with new or existing construction to provide the required third-party verification of your building. An independent inspection after work has been completed will assure that the home meets the strict standards for ES Home certification.
