MaGrann Associates has been an ENERGY STAR Homes provider since its inception in 1996. Having certified over 53,000 homes to-date, we can walk you through the latest standards and help you deliver the benefits of energy efficiency without sacrificing exceptional design, comfort, and durability. We provide a full range of services from consulting and training to certification. MaGrann Associates was named ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year and has repeatedly received “ENERGY STAR for Homes Leadership in Housing Awards.”
The step-by-step process of an ENERGY STAR Homes certification includes:
Initial Plan Review: A one-time rating from plans and specifications to determine project level upgrade recommendations.
Pre-Construction Orientation: Half-day training meetings with site crews, subcontractors, and others involved in the design and construction process, to discuss and review construction details.
Pre-Drywall Inspection: Verifies air sealing and insulation of the foundation, envelope, and duct systems, giving installation and compliance recommendations as necessary.
Final Inspection, Testing & Certification: Determines specific performance characteristics of the house and systems along with final qualification for ENERGY STAR labeling.
Support & Training: Multiple training offerings for various aspects of the ENERGY STAR construction and sales processes as well as technical support for resolving construction or performance challenges.
We are proud 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 minimum code requirements. Even in states with more rigorous energy codes, the U.S. EPA ensures that ENERGY STAR remains the symbol for truly energy-efficient performance. These homes are good for businesses, consumers, and the environment.
