    • Recommend customized upgrades and other cost saving tips
    • Help consumers compare the energy use of different homes

    Home Energy Scoring Tool is quick and easy to use. Assessors can gather the information needed to assess a home in one short site visit. This low-cost, high value assessment can be provided as a stand-alone service or as an add-on to a home inspection or comprehensive energy assessment.
