Benefits of Becoming an EnergySmart Contractor
Having the EnergySmart Contractor designation sets you apart from your competition, gives you third-party credibility, and provides homeowners - as well as energy auditors - the confidence that you can competently install energy improvement measures according to nationally recognized standards.
- More Referrals – You will be eligible to join RESNET EnergySmart Home Performance Teams – working with energy auditors and raters to maximize a home’s energy efficiency. They are trusted advisors to homeowners, and the leads they generate are highly qualified leads.
- Be Ready for Legislation – New legislation such as the 25E Tax Credit and the Save Act may require certification for your work to qualify. Be ready instead of playing catch-up!
- Increased Credibility – Your EnergySmart certification tells consumers that you’re a first-class professional, you understand energy efficiency, and you can keep them comfortable and reduce their energy expenses.
