Energy Star® Design
Would you like to cut your energy bills in half?
The Energy Star® program begins with the home’s design and specifications. We understand the technologies that
will make your home more energy efficient and can create a design that will be Energy Star® qualified.
Whiteley & Whiteley is an Energy Star® Partner.
Energy Star® is a program that ensures your new home’s energy efficiency by qualifying the design and construction
- Your home design and specifications are submitted to a third-party rater to verify that they meet the minimum
Energy Star® standards.
- The design is assigned a HERS rating that indicates the level of energy efficiency. The lower the HERS number,
the higher the efficiency.
- The home is inspected and tested by the third-party rater throughout the construction process to ensure it
is built according to the design.
- If the home passes all inspections and tests, a certificate is issued indicating the home is Energy Star® qualified.
The home will also have a sticker affixed to the circuit breaker panel indicating its qualification.
