HOME ENERGY RATINGS, REBATES & CERTIFICATIONS
Energy Modeling - This software tool compares the predicted energy use of a building to that of a code-built home with the same dimensions in the same location. It can be used during the design process to quickly and easily compare the effectiveness of different energy efficiency measures and is the first step in any building certification.
Energy Code Compliance - Energy codes are updated regularly making it challenging to keep up with the changes. E.Coe Company offers assistance with WSEC credit paperwork and strategies for code compliance.
Blower Door & Duct Leakage Testing - As air leaks through holes in the building shell, it carries moisture & odors and transfers heat. Blower door and duct leakage testing finds those air leaks allowing you to build more energy efficient, comfortable, healthy, durable and affordable to live in homes.
Federal 45L Energy Efficient Home Builder's Tax Credit - A $2,000 tax credit for a dwelling unit that is certified to have an annual level of heating and cooling energy consumption at least 50% below the annual level of heating and cooling energy consumption of a comparable dwelling unit & has building envelope component improvements that account for at least 1/5 of the 50% reduction in energy consumption.
Utility Rebates - Some local energy utilities, including Puget Sound Energy and Snohomish PUD, offer rebates to builders for the construction of energy efficient homes and for the selection of certain energy efficient equipment and appliances. These rebates range from $50 to $2,000. E.Coe Companuy will make sure you don't miss out on a single rebate.
Energy Star Home - Energy Star certified homes are designed and built to be more energy efficient than typical code-built new construction. These homes are inspected, tested and verified to assure the quality buyers expect from the Energy Star brand, one of the most recognized and respected in the U.S.
Department of Energy's Zero Energy Ready Home - A step beyond Energy Star, ZERH certification represents a whole new level of performance with rigorous requirements that ensure outstanding levels of energy savings, comfort, health, and durability.
Home Energy Rating - The Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index is the industry standard by which a home’s energy efficiency is measured. It’s also the nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating a home’s energy performance.
