To earn the ENERGY STAR, a home must meet strict guidelines for energy efficiency set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. These homes are at least 15% more energy efficient than homes built to the 2004 International Residential Code (IRC), and include additional energy-saving features that typically make them 20–30% more efficient than standard homes.  Go Green, NM can provide you with alternative UA compliance using ResCheck required by some NM local building codes.


There are two types of ratings:

  • Projected Rating – Ratings performed prior to the construction of a home or prior to the installation of energy improvements to an existing home.
  • Confirmed Rating – Ratings completed using data gathered from an on-site inspection, which could include performance testing of the home.
