You have heard of Energy Star Qualified label and like everything about it. At Diamante Custom Homes we like to push the envelope and you can expect us to take it a step further than that! A step beyond Energy Star Qualified is Energy Star Certified.
For a home to be truly energy efficient, its design and construction must consider local conditions. Home Energy Raters are trained in climate-specific energy saving techniques, and their knowledge and field experience help ENERGY STAR builder partners select the most appropriate energy-efficient features.
Raters conduct onsite inspections and testing of ENERGY STAR CERTIFIED homes to ensure they meet rigorous program guidelines. The process typically includes a blower door test to measure air leakage in the house, a duct blaster test to measure duct leakage, and a comprehensive set of inspections to assure proper construction details.
Homes that earn the ENERGY STAR CERTIFICATION typically undergo significantly more systems engineering, inspections, and testing than homes built to code. This verification process helps to identify and correct mistakes before they become problems and holds builders accountable to higher standards.
We back it up by Independent Inspections and Testing. At Diamante Custom Homes we are constantly pushing the limits of Energy Efficiency and only settle for the best.
