What is Energy Star?
The Energy Star program was an American designed program to save you money and protect the environment.

New homes can be given program approval by meeting certain HVAC, water management, and thermal enclosure system requirements.

As a homeowner, you can schedule an appointment with a home advisor. They offer expert advice and ideas for home improvement projects that will increase the energy efficiency of your home. The cooling, heating, and water systems are all evaluated by the advisor. Your current appliances, such as your water heater or furnace system, may not be as efficient as you think. The input of an advisor can help you decide what actions to take to make the most of your energy use.
