Home Energy Scoring Frequently Asked Questions
- What is a Home Energy Score?
A Home Energy Score is a rating system developed by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) that provides a standardized method of quickly assessing a home’s envelope (foundation, insulation, walls, windows, etc.) and major energy systems. The rating is based on a 1 to 10 scale and how much energy the home is expected to use, assuming standard conditions and occupants’ behavior.
- What does an Assessor looking for during a Home Energy Score inspection?
When an assessor does an energy assessment inspection of a home, he will collect about 40 pieces of information about a home’s envelope as well as the heating, cooling and hot water systems. This information will be entered into a Home Energy Scoring Tool and generate an energy score.
