MaGrann Associates has been named an ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year and has repeatedly received “ENERGY STAR for Homes Leadership in Housing Awards.”
The step-by-step process for 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 Verification: Verifies air sealing and insulation of the foundation, envelope, and duct systems, giving installation and compliance recommendations as necessary.
Final Verification, 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 certify new homes for the ENERGY STAR label. The ENERGY STAR label on a home means that it has been designed and built to standards well above other homes in the market today. It means better quality, better comfort, and better durability. It also means that the home is a better value for today, and a better investment for tomorrow. The ENERGY STAR label gives homeowners the peace of mind that their home has undergone a better process for testing and verification to ensure that it meets strict requirements set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
