It takes planning to build high-performance homes that meet the ENERGY STAR® for New Homes (ESNH) Standard. But through this planning, you’ll discover ways to reduce material costs, streamline your building schedule and incorporate the right building methods and design, right from the start.
Homes need to be planned to meet ESNH v17 Standard before building even starts. This methodical approach ensures you take steps that analyze costs and reduce risks, improving your business operations.
This team approach will create a better product. Trades who are clear on their role in an ENERGY STAR construction can work efficiently and take pride when the final air-infiltration test results are successful.
By building high-performance new construction homes that meet ESNH standard, you’re able to build upon the knowledge and skills you have already acquired and move your construction to the next level.
Inspections assess work quality, so your trades will know if they are meeting expectations.
Third-party verification ensures best building practices, catching issues early and providing a final air-infiltration test.
Your CEA will help your team achieve a better understanding of building science so you can continually improve.
