Typically, review time for ENERGY STAR certification (and Designed to Earn the ENERGY STAR) is 1-2 weeks from the time you submit your application.

However, this can vary depending on several factors:

  • Application volume – The deadline for annual certification is sometime in November for that calendar year. If you submit in late October or November, expect 4-6 weeks turn-around.
  • Questions on your Application – If we have questions about your application, there may be some delay.
  • Application complexity – Simple properties and applications are quicker and easier to review. Here are some tips to keep it simple:
    • Minimize the number of property uses. Related FAQ.
    • Use the Notes field in your application if there is anything that might cause our reviewers to ask questions.
