Want to build a “Green” home? We can show you how. With the market shifting towards building a more efficient home, the term “Green” has taken on a new meaning within the industry. Yet, there is no set standard of what makes a product green.
How do you show off how green your home is if there is no definition of “Green”? That is where the green verification systems comes in. Programs like GreenPoint Rated, LEED for Homes, and NAHB Green have defined what it means to be green and have develop a verification system for documenting a homes “green-ness”. By building an energy-efficient home and incorporating green building techniques into the design and construction of the home, the home earns green points.
The programs require that special inspections be done by a trained and certified individual in order to earn their coveted ratings. This insures that everything is documented and verified. DuctTesters is proud to say they are a Certified GreenPoint Rater for both the new and existing homes programs, Certified NAHB Green Rater, and a Certified LEED Rater as well.
