As a proud partner of ENERGY STAR® and a 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year award recipient, SkyeTec provides the expertise & energy rating services needed for ENERGY STAR certification. As consultants, we work with the builder throughout construction to ensure that each home is on track to meet the ENERGY STAR guidelines for certification. Learn more about the features and benefits of ENERGY STAR certified homes.

SkyeTec’s integration of technology with energy ratings puts valuable information at your fingertips while creating a smooth inspection process that maintains your construction schedule. ENERGY STAR program clients receive access to the SkyeTrac Client Portal, SkyeTec’s online interactive tool for real-time inspection data, results, and statistical reporting. 

What to Expect:

  • SkyeTec will conduct a Thermal Bypass inspection during the pre-drywall stage of construction.  This inspection will verify insulation installation, windows, duct sealing, framing techniques, and other items that are visible at this stage of the build.  This inspection takes approximately 45 minutes to complete.
  • Upon completion of the house, SkyeTec will conduct the final inspection.  During this inspection the Blower Door and Duct Leakage tests are performed and items such as lighting, appliances, and sealing are verified.  This inspection takes approximately 45 minutes to complete.
  • If items are identified during either inspection that require corrective action or attention, the field inspector will notify the builder

SkyeTec was a key factor in our original decision to become an ENERGY STAR® builder.  Their staff is always available to train or review questions and concerns we have.  We feel like SkyeTec truly understands how to meet ENERGY STAR’s goals, while keeping the challenges that Ryland faces in this market as a production builder in mind.   SkyeTec has not only started the Tampa division with the program, but also continued to guide us and other divisions through the ENERGY STAR changes to deliver the most energy efficient homes for our customers.
