To the editor,

We just finished the energy rating on our house and we wish to convey how positive the experience was. First, our state generously recognizes and rewards efforts that produce energy conservation and good energy ratings. Second, good energy ratings result in continued energy and financial savings that are perhaps even more valuable than the state's rebate. And third, it makes you feel good to know that the construction is environmentally sound, since saving on energy truly pays for itself.

The sophisticated energy rating objective tests told us what to do to further make additional improvements above and beyond the already sound construction that yielded a six star rating.

We have been so impressed with the process that we plan to periodically repeat testing in future to make certain that we maintain our efficiency and keep up with new technology, which in turn will save money.

Involvement with rating earlier in the construction process would have been more positive and it would pay for itself (and even more). The paperwork for the energy rating process is onerous and even though we did our home work ahead of time, professional and objective input much earlier would have many benefits, including having the right paperwork and speeding up the rating and rebate process.
