ENERGY STAR for New Homes
Many builders say they meet or exceed the requirements of ENERGY STAR but fail to have their work third-party verified. Kodiak recognizes the value of having our work tested, measured, and verified, and can assist any building effort in achieving this distinction. With ENERGY STAR for New Homes, performance measures are verified and homes receive a Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index Score - a numeric score that provides homeowners with an objective measure of their home’s energy performance. The lower the score, the better the home. A Home Energy Rating is a great way to compare one home’s efficiency to another’s. If you are interested in green building practices, remember that all things green start with ENERGY STAR blue.
