The Certified Ratings Program, sponsored by the Florida Home Builders Association (FHBA), provides certified energy ratings certificates for new single-family homes, energy rating certificates for homes that are already built, and certified Water Star™ and Water Efficiency Rating Score (WERS) rating certificates for buildings.
Single-family home builders can directly support their industry when they order independent energy ratings based on Florida’s Energy Code or above Code. Whether it’s certified code calculations, a certified blower door test, an Energy Rating Index (ERI) rating or a standalone validated energy inspection, we can handle it all.
Our trusted partner, Intertek, provides world class third-party quality assurance. Building departments around the state and country already receive millions of certification and evaluation reports from Intertek to prove compliance. The Program makes energy ratings and energy code compliance easy for the builder, energy inspector and the building department.
The FHBA Program accepts inspection agencies and individual inspectors accredited or managing their inspection programs to ISO/IEC 17020:2012 with the proper scope as well as agencies that are IAS Accredited Inspection Agencies with the proper scope. The FHBA Program may also accept BPI Certified Professionals, BPI Raters, certified ICC Residential Energy Inspectors/Plans Examiners, recognized RESNET® or FSEC Raters in good standing and FS 468 or 489 license holders for the appropriate scope.
