What happens during a Home Energy Assessment

The Home Energy Assessment is conducted by an authorized Home Energy Assessor like Conservation Measures and takes less than two hours to complete. More than seventy pieces of home information are collected during an energy assessment. Information about a home’s envelope (foundation, insulation, walls, windows) as well as its heating, cooling and hot water systems will be entered into energy modeling software.

Information about how residents operate the house and non-permanent house features like lighting, home electronics and appliances are not included in the Home Energy Score calculation. Home energy scoring assumes standard operating conditions in order to allow homes to be compared on an apples-to-apples basis, independent of occupant behavior.

As soon as the data points are entered into the software, the Home Energy Score and Report will be available immediately at the Green Building Registry.
