FHBA Certified Ratings Program
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 System (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.
Our trusted partners, UL (Underwriters Laboratories) and Intertek, provide world class third-party quality assurance. Participants can choose to work with one or both of these internationally recognized leaders in the industry. Building departments around the state and country already receive millions of certification and evaluation reports from UL and Intertek to prove compliance. The Program makes energy ratings and energy code compliance easy for the builder, energy inspector and the building department.
Make our Program yours. We operate in Florida, but there is demand in other states for similar services. Whether it’s certified code calculations, a certified blower door test, an Energy Rating Index (ERI) rating or a standalone validated energy inspection, your state HBA too could have our trusted partners provide certificates.
