Proper Design and Quality Installation Practices
The heating and cooling systems in ENERGY STAR certified homes and apartments are designed and installed in accordance with industry-accepted best practices and subject to independent review and inspection.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
The living space in ENERGY STAR certified homes and apartments are served by ventilation systems that continuously exchange indoor air with outdoor air to reduce the indoor air pollutants in your home. Systems are also installed in bathrooms and kitchens to more rapidly remove moisture and cooking contaminants that can be harmful to occupant health and to the durability of your home.
