About Energy Star


ENERGY STAR is a nationally recognized, voluntary labeling program designed to identify and promote energy-efficient products, new homes and buildings to consumers and business owners across the United States. Initiated by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 1992, ENERGY STAR is now a joint effort of EPA and the US Department of Energy. EPA is responsible for administering the ENERGY STAR label for homes.

An ENERGY STAR Labeled Home is at least 30% more energy efficient in its heating, cooling and water heating than a comparable home built to the 1993 Model Energy Code (MEC). This increased level of energy efficiency can be met using standard technologies and manufacturing practices by successfully integrating three key home components:
  • An energy efficient building envelope (effective insulation, tight construction, advanced windows).

  • Energy efficient air distribution (air-tight, well-insulated ducts).

  • Energy efficient equipment (space heating, space cooling and hot water heating).
There are at least four basic reasons why a plant should consider making the commitment to produce ENERGY STAR Labeled Homes.
  1. The ENERGY STAR label can be a powerful sales tool.

  2. ENERGY STAR Labeled Homes have lower monthly operating costs and potentially increase the resale value of a home.

  3. The efficiency measures built into an ENERGY STAR Labeled Home have residual benefits that increase customer satisfaction.

  4. ENERGY STAR offers another opportunity for a manufactured housing producer to demonstrate parity with or superiority to site-built competitors.
These four considerations make a strong argument for the value of joining the program and becoming an ENERGYSTAR Partner.

Becoming an ENERGY STAR Partner is a three-part process that occurs in the following sequence:
  1. Qualify the Plant

  2. Produce ENERGY STAR Labeled Homes

  3. Maintain ENERGY STAR Labeled Home Manufacturer Status
All three parts are straightforward but require a commitment of time and resources, backed by a commitment to marketing and selling the ENERGY STAR brand.

Visit the EPA Energy Star website to learn more about how the program increases profits, improves customer satisfaction and protects the environment.
