Energy Ratings

How efficient is your home, really?

Home Energy Ratings are on the rise with new programs available to offset part or even all of the expense of having a Home Energy Rating performed on your home. Home Energy Ratings are a great way to distinguish your home's energy features from those of your neighbors, whether next door, or across town.

The Home Energy Rating process results in an actual Home Energy Score being given to your house, harnessing all the energy features into one easy-to-remember value. Also, the Home Energy Rating, when done correctly, will leave you with a list of recommended energy improvements that are relevant to your home, with costs for the measures as well as a report that gives you an accurate prediction to the energy savings for each measure.

Everyone has probably heard of Energy Star, and most even have Energy Star equipment already in their home. Whether your refrigerator, dish washer, washer and dryer, or even your Air Conditioning and Heating equipment, Energy Star certified appliances are a great way to go. However, prior to buying new appliances, it is important that homeowners understand that simply replacing appliances is not actually the most cost effective way to reduce energy usage in most homes.

Things like Air Sealing, Duct Sealing, and even adding insulation all result in far more dramatic reductions in energy usage for the common homeowner, with a much smaller price tag. Sure, after the envelope has been addressed with Air Sealing, Duct Sealing, and other measures, upgrading the equipment and appliances in your home, or even adding renewables like Solar PV and Solar water heating will lead to much greater gains in your overall energy footprint.
