Earth Advantage Home Certification is Earth Advantage’s high performance home certification standard for single family detached and attached homes. The program can help builders differentiate themselves while building more sustainable homes for a public increasingly interested in energy efficiency and healthier residences. The standard is based on achieving required points on a scoring sheet covering five categories -- energy efficiency, healthy indoor air quality, resource efficiency, environmental responsibility, and water conservation – earned over the course of two verification visits. Earth Advantage offers three levels certification: Silver, Gold, and Platinum, as well as the advanced Earth Advantage Zero Energy and Zero Energy Ready, Multifamily certification and the newly launched Remodel certification.
