Residential Energy Services is a registered PHIUS verifier and can help you on the road to achieving PHIUS certification for your home or project. PHIUS is a voluntary, consensus-based standard to support and certify successful green building design, construction and operations. PHIUS is transforming the marketplace by providing a nationally recognized certification system to promote integrated, whole-building design practices in the building industry.
PHIUS is a third-party certification program and the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. PHIUS gives building owners and operators the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable impact on their buildings’ performance. PHIUS promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.
A green home uses less energy, water and natural resources; creates less waste; and is healthier and more comfortable for the occupants. Benefits of a PHIUS home include lower energy and water bills; reduced greenhouse gas emissions; and less exposure to mold, mildew and other indoor toxins. The net cost of owning a PHIUS home is comparable to that of owning a conventional home.
