A Home Energy Score is an easy way to see how energy efficient your home is. It estimates how much energy your home uses, where your home is losing energy and provides energy solutions to make your home more efficient and comfortable. Each score is shown on a 1-10 scale, where 10 equals the most efficient home.
The HES is about gaining knowledge and information about your home. It’s an assessment process that helps you make better decisions about potential upgrades. Our home energy score assessor uses a formula developed by the US Department of Energy (DOE) to score your home’s energy use on a scale of 1 to 10. It estimates home energy use, associated costs, and provides energy solutions to cost effectively improve your home’s efficiency.
During your Home Energy Score, our Home Energy Assessor will perform a walk through in your home to look at all energy related assets such as your heating and cooling system, water heater, insulation levels, windows, foundation and much more. Looking at each one of these items in your home can tell us a lot about the energy you are using on a daily basis and give us the answers we need to find solutions to making your home more energy efficient and comfortable.
We will provide you with your home energy score, a report of our findings as well as recommendations to make your home more comfortable and efficient.
Our Home Energy Score is just the start to learning about the efficiency of your home. If you want to know even more, check out our Advanced Home Energy Audit which includes in depth home energy testing and a comprehensive report!
With the information we collect about how your home uses energy, will provide you with a home energy score between 1 and 10, where 10 is the most efficient home.
This score is compared to a miles per gallon rating on a car.
An energy efficiency score based on the home's envelope (foundation, roof, walls, insulation, windows) and heating, cooling, and hot water systems.
We will inspect your heating and air conditioning system to determine the age and efficiency of the system. A high efficient HVAC system can save the average household hundreds of dollars a year.
Your assessor can determine if your house needs wall or attic insulation, to maintain a more consistent temperature, allowing for better mold and moisture control.
Find out if you have an outdated water heater and what options you have to replace it with a more energy efficient model.
Maybe your home has leaky ducts. Your HVAC system is only as efficient as your ductwork. Your assessor will know. You can increase comfort and reduce dust and excess moisture in your home for a healthier environment by sealing your ducts.
We’ll help you get the biggest bang for your energy efficiency upgrades. Find the best solution and the right project that fits your needs.
After your Home Energy Score Assessment we will provide you with a detailed report of your home as well as your home energy score (between 1-10, where 10 equals the most efficient home).
In addition to your report, we will provide you with a list of recommendations to make your home more energy efficient. Each recommendation will give you information on how much you can save by making that particular upgrade.
We will also provide you with the final score that your home could meet if all recommendations and upgrades were performed.
We work with some of the best contractors in the industry and we will happily recommend a licensed contractor that can help you with the upgrades you choose.
