Blower technicianHome Performance with ENERGY STAR is an excellent opportunity for insulation and air sealing companies, heating and air (HVAC) contractors, handyman, and home renovation firms to expand their business. Being a part of Home Performance with ENERGY STAR is also a great way to distinguish qualified companies from their competitors in the market.

A contractor who understands how the house works as a system can diagnose the problems of the whole house and give the homeowner recommendations accordingly. What might have started as a call from a customer wanting just a new furnace can turn into a job that includes an air sealing package, additional insulation, and sealing the ductwork. All of this instead of—or in addition to—the new furnace.

EarthWays Center of the Missouri Botanical Garden, as the Missouri/Illinois St. Louis Regional implementer of the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program, provides contractor referrals to inquiring consumers.
