Energy Star Homes

Energy Star New Homes Program

Colorado Energy Analysts is certified to provide rating services to qualify new homes for the Energy Star Label.  Energy Star qualified new homes are substantially more energy efficient than homes built to the code requirements.  The U.S. EPA and Department of Energy remain committed to ensure that the Energy Star label remains the leading symbol for truly energy efficient performance.  This level of energy efficiency is good for businesses, consumers and the environment.

We have seen the Energy Star mark on appliances for years.  It is a symbol of energy efficiency and lower utility bills.  Energy Star has grown to the next level with Energy Star 3.  This level is higher than the past energy code and still exceeds the requirements of the new IECC.  Energy Star still is and will continue to be the leader in energy efficiency standards.


Benefits of owning an Energy Star qualified new home are:

A Label backed by the US government

All Energy Star certified new homes meet the EPS’s strict guidelines for energy efficiency.  This level of performance is verified by a certified, independent third party.

Lower Utility Costs

Compared to standard homes, Energy Star qualified new homes use substantially less energy for heating, cooling and hot water heating.  The homeowner can typically expect to save about $200 to $400 annually on their utility.

More Comfortable and Quieter Homes

The energy efficient features of Energy Star qualified new homes keeps out excessive heat, cold, noise and drafts to ensure consistent temperatures within rooms and between rooms making these homes more comfortable to live in.

Helping to Create a Better Future

By owning an Energy Star qualified new home, you are joining an elite group of millions of homeowners who have changed to Energy Star, helping our nation reduce energy consumption and building a cleaner environment for the future.


Features of our ENERGY STAR qualified new homes include:

Effective Insulation — Properly installed insulation that meets or exceeds national code requirements helps achieve even temperatures throughout the house while using less energy. The result is lower utility costs and a quieter, more comfortable home.

High-Performance Windows — Advanced window coatings help keep heat in during winter and out during summer. They also block damaging ultraviolet sunlight that can discolor carpets and furniture.

Tight Construction and Tight Ducts — Attention to detail by sealing all holes, cracks, and seams in ducts and construction assemblies helps eliminate drafts, moisture, dust, pests, and pollen. This improves comfort and the quality of indoor air, while lowering maintenance costs.

Energy-Efficient Heating and Cooling Equipment — More efficient and properly sized heating and cooling systems use less energy, which reduces utility bills. These systems also turn on and off less frequently, removing more humidity and providing better comfort.
