Pohaku Consulting is proud to provide rating services to certify new homes for the ENERGY STAR® label. The ENERGY STAR label on a home means that it has been designed and built to standards well above other homes in the market today. It means better quality, better comfort, and better durability. It also means that the home is a better value for today, and a better investment for tomorrow. The ENERGY STAR label gives homeowners the peace of mind that their home has undergone a better process for inspections, testing, and verification to ensure that it meets strict requirements set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Homes earn the ENERGY STAR label only when an independent third-party (an accredited Home Energy Rater or HERS rater) verifies that they meet ENERGY STAR guidelines. HERS raters like Peter are trained to evaluate construction techniques, take key measurements, create software energy models, conduct inspections at key points during the construction process and test, if necessary, that the home has met the stringent prescriptive or performance standards and requirements of the program.
