  1. I invented a new generator that beats the Energy Star rating. I can't tell you about it here, because they now consider me their competitor.

  2. Advanced Building Analysis, LLC has been proud to be an ENERGY STAR Homes Partner for the last 8 years. Ask us about Version 3.1 and the just released revision 8 to the checklists. This is supposed to be simpler than the previous versions! And we can help keep it simple. Using mini-split heat pumps is one nice trick to simplify the HVAC requirements. Consumers should know that these homes have had far more Quality Assurance and Quality Control compared to average new homes and it's not just about energy.

  3. Great video discussing ENERGY STAR certified #newhomes.  They are designed and built to standards well above most other homes on the market today, delivering #energyefficiency savings of up to 30% when compared to typical new homes. A new home that has earned the #ENERGYSTAR label has undergone a process of #inspections, #testing, and #verification to meet strict requirements. We can get you there by developing a personalized plan with options, budget, and we can take care of your #EnergyStar Testing and Certification.  ducttesters.com/
