Energy Ratings are required to be done for all new homes and larger additions prior to obtaining a building permit. The energy rating for a new home must show that the proposed design will achieve at least a 6 Star energy rating . At Carter Perspective we undertake the energy rating for you during the design phase, and adjust any component of the design to enhance any aspect of the energy rating and the buildings thermal performance. We are thinking about energy efficiency at the concept stage, reviewing orientation, window placement and materials, and we typically generate a preliminary energy rating for review with client, prior to progressing to final working drawings. We can discuss options for any improvements or specific design elements,widow types, eaves and screens etc or energy rating targets, and once upon completion of the design & energy rating we then produce the final report and energy rated stamped plans for application for your building permit.
Price for energy rating starts at $450
