High Performance homes are homes that have been independently verified and tested to maximize the performance of their design. Third party verification unlocks home potential and enables you to value engineer your product, specifically around comfort, efficiency and health.
Since 2001, SEM has been a leader in independent, third-party verification, certifying that new homes are designed and built to achieve high performance. We are proud to say that with nearly 20 years of building science experience, we’ve been committed to meeting our customers where they are regardless of whether they are ready to sprint towards their goals, walk slowly forward, or anywhere in between.
We learned a long time ago that if we held ourselves to higher standards and took care of our people and the environment, we would rise above the rest. That’s why Southern Energy Management decided to become a certified B Corp in 2009.
B Corp verifies that SEM meets rigorous standards in social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.
We’re a passionate team dedicated to improving the way people make and use energy.
