Integral Building & Design provides Home Energy Ratings and Performance Testing for a variety of rating systems that help architects, contractors and installers meet energy efficiency requirements. These include:
New York State Energy Code Compliance
Many local building departments mandate energy efficient measures that require performance testing and verification to be performed by a third party Rater.
Homes that undergo a series of inspections, performance testing and verifications that meet the ENERGY STAR program typically have energy savings up to 30 percent when compared to a code built home. These features typically deliver better durability, quality and comfort.
The EPA Indoor airPLUS program builds upon ENERGY STAR Home requirements by providing additional specifications related to indoor air quality. These include the selection of ventilating equipment, HVAC equipment, radon mitigation and low-emitting building materials.
US DOE Zero Energy Ready Homes
Homes built to the US DOE ZERH program are high performing. They are energy efficient enough that their renewable energy systems can offset most, if not all, of their annual energy consumption.
Passive House Institute- US
Homes built to the PHIUS program cut energy consumption by 60-80 percent when compared to code buildings. These passive buildings will provide superior comfort, indoor air quality and resilience.
USGBC LEED for Homes™
Homes built to the USGBC LEED-H program are built to be environmentally conscious, utilize healthier building materials and provide clean indoor air. These homes also promote reduced carbon emissions and thoughtful land use.
