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.
ENERGY STAR qualified home is significantly more energy efficient in its heating,
cooling, and water heating than a comparable standard code home. This increased
level of energy efficiency can be met using standard technologies and manufacturing
practices by successfully integrating three key home components:
energy-efficient building envelope (e.g., effective insulation, tight construction,
and high-performance windows).
- Energy-efficient air distribution
(e.g., airtight, well-insulated ducts).
- Energy-efficient equipment
(e.g., space heating, space cooling, and hot water heating).
