Energy Star is most commonly known for certifying appliances, but the Energy Star program also certifies homes. Unlike LEED or NAHB Green Building programs that consider multiple aspects, the Energy Star Home program only considers energy consumption. Fiberlite's Cellulose Insulation can substantially help a new home in attaining an Energy Star rating. For more details please refer to the Energy Star website.
