Home Energy Assessments

What is a Home Energy Assessment?

An Energy Specialist will assess your home’s current energy use, provide a custom list of energy-saving recommendations, and will help you develop a plan to make your home more energy efficient. What you should expect:

  • A Home Energy Assessment usually takes 1.5 to 2.5 hours
  • All key decision-makers should be present at the assessment
  • The specialist will help you develop an energy savings plan and explain applicable incentives

Your no-cost Home Energy Assessment will include:

  • A personalized report outlining recommended energy efficiency improvements
  • Installation of no-cost immediate savings measures such as light emitting diode (LED) light bulbs, programmable thermostats, and water saving devices, as needed
  • Screening for eligibility for the ENERGY STAR® refrigerator rebate
  • Air Sealing and Insulation specification, if applicable
  • Infrared Testing, if applicable
  • Combustion Safety Testing
