The Benefits of "GREEN" Move-In-Certified

Home Inspector with Halliday Home Inspections

Being a Certified InterNACHI Home Inspector in Southern California we feel it is very important to know if your home is GREEN or not so GREEN.  A Home Inspectors job can be to let you the Buyer or Seller know what items are energy effecient and what items are not.  You can now request a home inspection for a "Green Certification".  It helps sellers advertise with potential buyers and gives buyers comfort in knowing if their future home will be energy efficient.

Green Certification Green is pleased to announce a new Green Certification initiative that will help to identify environmentally friendly homes to home buyers and help promote environmentally friendly homes for home sellers.
This certification was created through the joint efforts of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, Inc. (InterNACHI), the International Association of Certified Indoor Air Consultants, Inc. (IAC2) and's Green Certified is a designation for homes that use design features, technologies and products that:
  • improve energy efficiency,
  • reduce pollution,
  • provide healthier air,
  • increase comfort,
  • reduce water usage preserve natural resources,
  • increase durability,
  • make a home quieter,
  •  reduce maintenance,
  •  lower monthly costs, and
  •  improve resale value.
Green Certified homes are healthier, more environmentally friendly, and economically smarter that average homes.

In this day in age there is no reason NOT to build a green home. More builders should become more knowledgeable about this.  I applaud you for stepping out and doing a better job than the competition!

You are right Diane. All the new products out on the market now make it easy to build from scratch or upgrade.  The cost is always becoming more affordable.  We are also General contractors and have been building residential homes for the last 15 years.  Green products have come a long way since we started.
