How much could you be Saving?
American households spend on average $2,200 each year on their utility bills. Many could pay far less by making home improvements that save energy, but most homeowners don’t have the information to take the first step. To meet this need, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) developed the Home Energy Score. It is an energy assessment that gives homeowners a quick understanding of how their homes perform and what steps to take to improve performance. Not every home inspection company is qualified to give you this assessment.
All of our inspectors have gone through the U.S. Department of Energy’s Assessor Program for the Home Energy Score, and are certification and ready to help you save!
Features of the Home Energy Score
- An energy efficiency score based on the home’s envelope (foundation, roof, walls, insulation, windows) and heating, cooling, and hot water systems
- A total energy use estimate, and estimates by fuel type assuming standard operating conditions and occupant behavior
- Recommendations for cost-effective improvements and associated annual cost savings estimates
- A “Score with Improvements” reflecting the home’s expected score if cost-effective improvements are implemented
