The US Department of Energy’s Home Energy Score is a nationally standardized “miles per gallon” type rating for single family homes. The Score provides homeowners, buyers and sellers an affordable, reliable and easy way to understand a home’s energy performance. The score provides a 1-10 Score for the house, along with a list of cost effective improvements that may increase the Score, lower utility bills, and make the house more comfortable. The tool is available online and is accessible once an assessor is qualified. More information on becoming an assessor is available here.
