CHECKLIST FOR FINAL INSPECTIONS
"Energy Diagnostics keeps us on our toes and ahead of the game! We began working with Energy Diagnostics in 2000, as they certified our new construction homes to the Energy-Star® program. In late 2008, it was a smooth transition to the NAHB Guidelines and then to the National Green Building Standard. Everything is handled with professionalism and integrity; from pre-scoring to scheduling to inspections and follow-through with NAHB. Ample notice is given when changes are happening to codes or standards. These guys are passionate about what they do, and they do it well."
