A home’s energy performance and key green features should be inspected by an independent third-party to ensure that standardized specifications for energy efficiency and indoor air quality have been installed correctly. Raters conduct onsite testing and inspections to verify the energy efficiency measures, as well as insulation, air tightness, and duct sealing details. Independent testing helps you to be confident regarding the details of energy-efficient construction
