October 7, 2019 — Energy Vanguard and its group of energy rating companies have teamed up with inspectors from Intertek to extend their group’s reach into Florida and throughout the United States.  Along with bringing Intertek inspections into the Energy Vanguard team, the group joins the Certified Rating Program which gives them access to innovative programs like Florida Water StarSM, the Water Efficiency Rating System (WERS), code conformity, energy ratings and more.

“We are taking the next steps in the evolving ratings and conformity business by giving builders and developers access to more capacity, knowledge, and expertise,” says Jeffrey Sauls, VP of Energy Vanguard.  Sauls says, “With Intertek’s thousands of inspectors providing our rating companies resources we can give faster response with quality inspectors at scale.”

The Certified Ratings Program is a leader in the home certification industry and provides energy ratings for new single-family homes, energy ratings for homes that are already built, Florida Water StarSM, WERS ratings and code conformity.  Builders can save money by eliminating redundant inspection costs while the Program verifies that a home meets building codes, proves rebate requirements, and simplifies compliance.

With Intertek offering its multitude of inspectors for providers such as Energy Vanguard in the Certified Ratings Program, our builders and customers can expect a quick, easy and reliable inspection process.  Intertek inspectors can work with any approved Certified Ratings Program inspection company.  To order an inspection, please visit www.certifiedratingsprogram.com.
