The Environments For Living® Program

The Environments For Living® program is an initiative of TopBuild Home Services., a TopBuild company. The program was launched in 2001, in response to a growing need for professional services to support regional and national home builders in applying building science and energy-efficient construction practices in the field.

Under the Environments For Living program, TopBuild Home Services uniquely offers a complete suite of turnkey services for builders. These include pre-construction plan reviews that use industry-standard home-energy analysis software, various inspection services, diagnostic testing utilizing industry-standard authentication tools. Builders can also take advantage of building science training, sales training, and marketing assistance. The program also offers homeowner limited guarantees on heating and cooling energy use and comfort.*

The Environments For Living program is product neutral and does not require any specific manufacturer's products. The prescriptive, performance-based program structure was developed with the assistance of nationally recognized experts in the field of building science, Building Science Corp. and Advanced Energy. The program meets the requirements of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ENERGY STAR® program and, at the Platinum energy level, meets the U.S. Department of Energy Building America® specifications. In 2007, the Environments For Living Certified Green program was introduced, combining the energy and building science platform of the program with added environmentally beneficial features and benefits, such as indoor water efficiency and appliance and lighting efficiency. It, too, was designed to be compatible with other green building programs nationally and locally.

The Environments For Living program is another example of TopBuild's leadership in bringing education, services and leading-edge thinking to the residential construction industry.
