ENERGY STAR certification offers a wide range of benefits for a residential building or single family home, including greater energy efficiency, enhanced indoor comfort, better durability, and reduced energy costs.
As a home performance consultant and certified ENERGY STAR rater, McNeely Building Group offers consulting and testing for ENERGY STAR certification throughout Michigan and parts of Ohio. Our ENERGY STAR consulting and testing services cover multifamily residential buildings as well as single family homes.
Why Get ENERGY STAR Certification?
ENERGY STAR is the government backed symbol for energy efficiency. With over 98,000 ENERGY STAR certified homes and multifamily units built in 2018 alone, and nearly 2 million certified homes built since 1995, homeowners and builders alike are recognizing the benefits of attaining ENERGY STAR certification.
ENERGY STAR certified homes are at least 10% more energy efficient than homes that are built to state energy codes. Whether you build a new home with rigorous ENERGY STAR requirements in mind or retrofit an existing home to achieve ENERGY STAR standards, the result is greater durability, greater comfort, and reduced energy and maintenance costs.
Some of the most noticeable benefits of an ENERGY STAR certified home include:
- Greater energy efficiency
- Reduced energy costs
- More consistent temperatures
- Fewer air leaks and drafts
- Better durability against the elements
- Healthier indoor air quality
