Like a miles-per-gallon rating for a car, the Home Energy Score is a rating that helps homeowners and buyers gain useful information about the property’s energy performance. The report estimates home energy use, associated costs, and provides energy solutions to cost-effectively improve the home’s efficiency. Our Home Energy Score program is:
- FAST! Assessment takes less than one hour in most homes.
- SIMPLE! Easy to understand 1 to 10 scale.
- CREDIBLE! Our inspectors have completed U.S. Department of Energy certification to perform these assessments.
How Having a Home Energy Score can Help Sell a House
According to the Demand Institute, energy efficiency is the most significant unmet demand in the housing market. Providing this information can make a home more appealing and available to a wider pool of potential buyers through access to energy efficiency-related financing products.
On average, utility costs are higher than either property taxes or home insurance. Studies indicate that homes disclosing energy costs – even when those costs were high – closed at a higher percentage of the asking price and spent less time on the market than comparable homes that did not disclose energy costs.
Simply put, home buyers appreciate the credible information Home Energy Score provides when purchasing a home.
