Energy Star Final
Energy testing per the Energy Star testing requirements. Inspector must fill out the extra Energy Star Checklists. At minimum this inspection involves the Blower Door and Duct Blaster testing per the initial Proposed Rating to achieve Energy Star Certification. This inspection stage can also have Advanced Testing performed during this stage at an additional charge.
Energy Final w/ Forensic
This inspection is used when a builder does not complete an insulation inspection and needs to certify the home. This inspection involves an Infrared Thermal Scan and verification of all energy efficient features of the home. This inspection can also involve Advanced testing as well. This is often called our Building Science Comfort Forensic.
The EFL program provides a rigorous set of requirements for home builders who've made a commitment to go the extra mile. It's a program that treats a home as a "system of systems" that work together, with limited guarantees* on comfort and heating/cooling energy use.
Energy Star Final w/ Green
Energy Final testing with Green program verification components.
Energy Final Code
Energy Final testing including Blower Door and Duct Blaster Testing. This testing parameters are to meet or exceed the limits in the Proposed calculation of the code home.
Energy Final Code w/ Green
Energy Final testing including Blower Door and Duct Blaster Testing. This testing parameters are to meet or exceed the limits in the Proposed calculation of the code home. This inspection also covers the green program items that the builder chose to put on their initial scoring tool to comply with the green program.
Final Inspection covering all of the items the builder placed on his scoring tool to comply with the respective green building program.
This inspection is for providing a Thermal Camera inspection looking for missing insulation, water intrusion, or heated electrical components. This inspection can be individual or added to an Energy Final. Addresses that never received an insulation inspection must have a Thermal Inspection added to the Energy Final for energy rating compliance.
Insulation - Energy Star
Insulation Inspection to follow the Energy Star performance and Prescriptive guidelines.
Insulation - E-Star w/ Rough Duct
Insulation inspection to Energy Star Standards with a Rough Duct Inspection performed at the Frame Stage.
Insulation - EFL
Insulation inspection to the EFL Standards.
Insulation - Code
Insulation inspection to verify all energy components that were initially inserted into the rating file.
Insulation - Energy Star w/ Green
Insulation inspection to the Energy Star Standards along with the Green Building requirement that the builder originally decided to build to be a part of whatever green program the builder chose to be a part of.
Insulation Code w/ Green
Insulation inspection to the energy code standards they originally chose to rate their plans to along with all of the items they decided to pick to use to score on the Green Program the builder chose to be a part of.
Plan Analysis - Code
Energy Plan Analysis in Remrate software to comply with code on the performance side of the code.
Plan Analysis - HERS
Energy Plan Analysis in Remrate software to comply with code and receive a HERS Index Score on the performance side of the code. This service will ultimately be reported to the National Rating Registry. This service will require an extra fee to cover the fee associated with the HERS rating charges from RESNET.
Plan Analysis - Energy Star
Energy Plan Analysis to the Energy Star Level. Builders must know the requirements of Energy Star. Both Performance and Prescriptive levels
