Synergy Custom Services is dedicated to providing verification services that enable new homes and multifamily properties to qualify for the prestigious ENERGY STAR label. This coveted label certifies that the property has been designed and constructed to rigorous standards that surpass those of other properties currently available on the market. Properties with the ENERGY STAR label offer superior quality, comfort, and durability, and represent an excellent investment for the future. This label also assures owners that their property has undergone a thorough inspection, testing, and verification process to ensure that it meets the stringent requirements set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
An ENERGY STAR qualified new home or apartment is designed and built to standards that make it significantly more energy-efficient than homes built to base building code. Here are some of the features you can expect from an ENERGY STAR qualified new home or apartment:
Effective Insulation - ENERGY STAR qualified homes have much more effective insulation compared to homes built to the base building code. The insulation is stronger and more thorough.
High Performance Windows - The windows used in ENERGY STAR qualified homes are at least 25% more efficient than code. This means they keep more heat out during the summer and more warmth in during the winter.
Tighter Construction - ENERGY STAR qualified homes have less air leakage, which means fewer drafts and fewer uncontrolled pathways for air to enter or leave the home. Not only does this reduce drafts, it eliminates pathways for pest to enter the home.
Tighter Heat and Air Ducts - The heat and air ducts in ENERGY STAR qualified homes are at least 50% more efficient, regardless of whether they are in the attic or crawl space. This ensures that the conditioned air stays where it belongs - in your living space.
Energy Efficient Heating and Cooling - ENERGY STAR qualified homes use less energy to condition the air, which means lower utility bills and greater comfort.
Efficient Water Use and Water Heating - ENERGY STAR qualified homes use less water without sacrificing water pressure. WaterSense products help reduce water usage throughout the house, while water heating systems heat water at a lower cost.
Energy Efficient Appliances - ENERGY STAR qualified homes come with energy-efficient appliances, which offer significant savings over less efficient models.
Cleaner House - ENERGY STAR qualified homes have cleaner air to breathe because of tighter air ducts and construction. Fresh air is brought in through a ventilation system, which helps eliminate problems with moisture, dust, pests, and other types of unclean things.
These are some of the benifits you can expect from an ENERGY STAR Qualified New Home or Apartment:
Improved Indoor Are Quality - An ENERGY STAR qualified new home can provide a healthier living environment by reducing the amount of dust, dirt, moisture, and allergens that enter the home.
Cost Savings - Compared to homes built to the base building code, ENERGY STAR qualified homes use less energy for heating, cooling, and water heating. This can result in significant savings on utility bills, which could amount to up to $1,000 per year. In addition, cleaner air in the home can lead to lower healthcare costs and less need for house maintenance over time.
More Comfortable - ENERGY STAR qualified homes are designed to keep cold out in the winter and heat out in the summer through better insulation and more efficient heating and cooling systems. This creates a more comfortable living space with consistent temperatures throughout the home.
