Home Energy Rating and Labeling

New Home Owners


Are you interested in being a new home owner that stands above the rest? The ENERGY STAR Certified Home is designed and built to high standards that require all energy systems and features work together more efficiently to deliver better performance. ENERGY STAR labeled homes use 15-30 percent less energy than typical new homes, and use even less energy compared to most resale homes on the market today.

Energy Star Products and Equipment

Are you replacing any of your equipment or appliances? Consider Energy STAR products – they are independently certified to save energy and at the same time help protect the environment.

Existing Home Owners


Are you interested in buying a home? Selling your home? The Home Energy Scores for homes are increasingly being included in the real estate market. The Home Energy Score program builds market value for home energy efficiency for single family and townhomes. This assessment is like knowing your miles-per-gallon in your car or the car you are thinking about buying. Even if you are not buying or selling a home, through an in-home assessment, you will learn how efficient your home is compared to others and will be provided with cost-effective recommendations to improve your home's energy efficiency.
