Certification Process

The ecoSelect program is designed for builders with two distinct advantages. Every ecoSelect is rated using the nationally-recognized HERS Index, and distinguished for going beyond minimum design standards in order to meet a higher level of indoor air quality and energy efficiency.In order to be eligible to certify homes under the ecoSelect program, builders are required to enter into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the ecoSelect program.

The ecoSelect designation reassures homeowners that the home they are buying is not only energy efficient, but also more comfortable and healthier than standard code-built homes on the market. Through a series of comprehensive on-site inspections during the construction of the home, homeowners can buy with added confidence knowing their home is healthier, more comfortable and energy efficient.
