Energy Star is an international standard for energy efficient consumer products originated in the United States.
Energy Star building is transforming the way we think about how our buildings and communities are designed, constructed, maintained and operated across the globe. Comprehensive and flexible, it is a green building tool that addresses the entire building lifestyle recognizing best-in-class building strategies.
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.
Being an Energy Star partner, High Caliber Construction is committed to building and renovating according to the stringent and widely known Energy Star standards.
