A new home that has earned the ENERGY STAR label has undergone a process of inspections, testing, and verification to meet strict requirements set by the US EPA. ENERGY STAR certified homes use 15-30% less energy than typical new homes while delivering better comfort, quality, and durability.
Improve financial performance and reduce carbon emissions with EPA's strategic energy management approach.
Any home that meets all the requirements of the ENERGY STAR certified homes program can earn the label. However, the ENERGY STAR certified homes program requires builders and home energy raters to perform quality assurance inspections throughout the building process, so generally only new homes can meet these requirements. Existing homes typically cannot meet all of these requirements without extensive renovations such as removing and replacing drywall, exterior cladding, roofing, and heating and cooling systems.
However, the energy efficiency of existing homes can often be greatly improved using cost-effective retrofit techniques. Visit ENERGY STAR Home Improvement to learn how.
