Join thousands of builders and developers across the country who are using the ENERGY STAR label, recognized by more than 90% of Americans, to build energy-efficient homes that offer comfort and value.
ENERGY STAR certified homes are designed to be at least 10% more efficient than homes built to code and, on average, deliver savings of more than 20% for homeowners by including these building science measures:
- A complete thermal enclosure system with comprehensive air sealing, quality-installed insulation, and high-performance windows
- A high-efficiency heating, ventilation, and cooling system
- A comprehensive water management system to protect roofs, walls, and foundations from moisture damage
- Energy-efficient lighting and appliances
At this conference, you’ll hear how an energy rating company works closely with the builder or developer throughout the construction process to help determine the needed energy−saving equipment and construction techniques and to conduct required on−site diagnostic testing and inspections to document that the home is eligible to earn the ENERGY STAR label. You’ll also learn about federal incentives for homes that earn ENERGY STAR certification and marketing resources to educate prospective homebuyers about the features and benefits of ENERGY STAR certified homes.
