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.

Matt G. is a newer addition to the DuctTesters team. Matt joined DuctTesters with a Physical and Biological Science Degree from the College of the Canyons. While attending College, Matt was a member of the “Hands on Earth Club” and held a strong passion to learn more about sustainability and energy-efficiency. His ambition to grow and educate himself further led him to DuctTesters. Matt joined the team as a HERS Rater Apprentice and shadowed Certified HERS Raters in the field for a few months learning the ins and outs of compliance, efficiency and quality assurance. This hands-on understanding of the building energy code compliance helped Matt with his training to become an official Certified HERS Rater. Matt recently took the CalCERTS training and certification courses and is an official Certified New Residential Construction and Alterations HERS Rater. We are proud of Matt and his dedication to our company.
