Boost Your Home's Energy Efficiency with Expert Home Energy Score Assessments
As the demand for energy-efficient homes grows and construction standards advance, having easy access to information on home energy efficiency becomes crucial. The Home Energy Score is a valuable assessment that offers homeowners, buyers, and renters a straightforward insight into a home's overall energy consumption.
Understanding the Home Energy Score
The Home Energy Score (HES), developed by the Department of Energy, is a user-friendly evaluation of a home's energy efficiency, comparable to a car's miles-per-gallon rating. The HES considers various aspects of a home's energy use, including the foundation, roof, walls, insulation, and heating, cooling, and hot water systems.
A certified HES assessor will inspect a home and generate a Home Energy Score Report. This report rates the home on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 indicating high energy use and 10 indicating low energy use. The report also provides information about the home, estimated energy consumption, suggested improvements, and the potential new rating and energy savings upon completing the recommended upgrades.
Advantages of a Home Energy Score Assessment
Whether you're a homeowner looking to enhance your home's efficiency, a realtor, or a home seller, it's an ideal time to schedule a Home Energy Score assessment. With the Home Energy Score, you can:
Identify necessary improvements for increased energy efficiency
Optimize your home's efficiency before putting it on the market
Compare energy usage across multiple homes for sale
Determine the likely energy expenses for a specific home
