The Energy Star Home Performance Evaluation

The Energy Star Home Performance Evaluation

08 Mar 2013

An Energy Star Home Performance Evaluation goes beyond your heating and air conditioning system to ensure your entire house uses energy efficiently. A qualified HVAC technician thoroughly examines your home to let you know what’s working and what needs to be improved.

Benefits of a Home Energy Audit

A home energy evaluation will:

  • Lower Your Energy Bill
  • Identify Where Conditioned Air Escapes
  • Lower Your Carbon Impact on the Environment
  • Eliminate Wasted Energy in Your Home
  • Ensure Your Heating and Cooling Systems Deliver the Most for Your Money
  • Low-Hanging Fruit: Low or No-Cost Energy Improvements to Lower Your Energy Bill

The Energy Star Home Performance Evaluation first begins with identifying those areas that can be easily fixed.

These include:

  • Door Seals
  • Cracks
  • Fluid Leaks
  • Gaps in Windows or Insulation
  • Lighting
  • Appliances
  • Ventilation Leaks

Many of these issues cost very little to fix. However, the savings in your monthly energy bill can be significant. Additionally, the evaluation reveals major improvements that can contribute to greater home energy efficiency.

Identify Home Improvements that Pay You Back Have you ever wondered which home improvement projects return the most for your investment? Not only does an Energy Star Home Audit report identify key projects that will lower your electric bill, but also your technician may be able to identify federal tax credits and rebates for which you qualify.

Major home improvement projects include:

  • Insulation
  • Ductwork
  • Windows
  • Water Heating Equipment
  • Renewable Energy Systems and Others

If you’ve budgeted for home improvement, then the Energy Star program can help you determine what to improve first. Ask you HVAC technician for more details.

About the Energy Star Home Audit Program

Energy Star is a joint project administered through the United States Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency. The purpose is to reduce the amount of wasted energy due to inefficiency. The Home Audit program seeks to take into account the entire home, not just the heating and cooling system. The professional evaluation meets or exceeds the Air Conditioning Contractors of America’s (ACCA) specifications, the highest in the industry.

With the Evaluation, you:

  • Lower Your Electric Bills
  • Protect the Environment
  • Improve the Efficiency of Your Home
