Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® Program


Do you want to live in a more comfortable house with fewer drafts and a lower utility bill?  Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® is a national program administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). It offers a comprehensive, “whole-house” approach to improving energy efficiency and comfort at home, while helping to protect the environment.  CEO actively supports the implementation of Colorado’s Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® Program, which includes training contractors to become whole-house energy experts able to conduct comprehensive testing and multiple measure recommendations to address energy and comfort issues in existing homes. Certified Home Performance contractors can help homeowners cost effectively improve their home’s energy efficiency. These specially trained contractors evaluate homes using state-of-the-art equipment and recommend comprehensive improvements that will yield the best results.
