Zero Energy Home

Zero Energy Home

We are proud of our client De Young Properties! De Young is building California’s largest grid-connected Zero Energy Home Community in Clovis called EnVision.  The project is scheduled to have 36 homes across 3,300 acres that produce as much energy as they use, ZNE (Zero Net Energy).  This will be the first master-planned community in Central California to be Zero Energy and still connected to the grid. DuctTesters is honored to be a part of this project helping De Young Properties with their energy consulting and verification needs.

Here are some photos from DeYoung Properties EnVision Launch Event.

U.S. EPA Thanks DuctTesters Again for ENERGY STAR Homes

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) thanked DuctTesters for contributing 14 ENERGY STAR certified homes in 2016 and for the continued commitment in energy-efficient new homes.  DuctTesters is once again proud to be an ENERGY STAR Certified Homes Partner in 2017, helping homebuyers experience the peace of mind, quality, comfort, and value that comes with living in an Energy Star certified home.  ENERGY STAR is a joint voluntary program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy that helps businesses and individuals save energy and fight climate change through energy efficient products, homes, and buildings.

In order to earn the ENERGY STAR label on a new home, a certified third-party organization (such as DuctTesters) must verify the home’s energy efficiency against the label’s mandatory minimum compliance requirements. If you are interested in certifying and/or obtaining an ENERGY STAR Certified Home, feel free to contact DuctTesters or see the National Program Requirements.
