Frequently asked questions

What is Energy Star?

ENERGY STAR is a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency voluntary program that helps businesses and individuals save money and protect our climate through superior energy efficiency. New homes that meet strict guidelines for energy efficiency can qualify for Energy Star certification.

An Energy Star qualified home uses at least 15% less energy than standard homes built to the 2003 International Residential Code (IRC). They usually include properly installed insulation, high performance windows, tight construction and ducts, energy efficient cooling and heating systems, and Energy Star qualified appliances, lighting, and water heaters

Why Retrofit my Existing Home?

Since buildings consume a significant amount of energy, particularly for heating and cooling, it is important to initiate energy conservation retrofits to reduce energy consumption and the cost of heating, cooling, and lighting buildings.  The costs have come down significantly since energy efficiency has been met with technological advancement.

Retrofitting an existing building can oftentimes be more cost-effective than a newly constructed building. In fact, today more than ever, you can realize a high return on your investment and faster paybacks!  For example, solar prices have come down almost 50 percent in price and is more efficient than ever.  The same is true for insulation and other efficiency and renewable building upgrades.  To find out more about estimating what your retrofit may cost, get your free report here.
