Snapshot & Benefits:
Home energy ratings are performed on new and existing homes to evaluate each home's energy performance. Home energy ratings are performed on new homes to verify energy performance for programs such as Energy Start Qualified homes. Existing homes may benefit from energy ratings by identifying cost-effective energy-efficiency improvements for the home. Additionally, home energy ratings are utilized by many financial institutions to qualify homes for energy-efficient mortgages.
Estimated Cost Savings:
Home energy ratings can identify cost-effective improvements that potentially save homeowners hundreds of dollars each year.
Please be careful not to assume that your home inspector can perform an energy rating. In fact, many do not.
Getting It Done:
Energy ratings are performed by Certified Home Energy Raters. Find a list of qualified raters at the Residential Energy Services Network's (RESNET's) online Certified Rater Directory.
