2. Home Energy Score (HES). Developed by the Department of Energy used to demonstrate a home’s overall energy efficiency. A formal report with a Home Energy Score is provided.
3. Building Performance Institute (BPI) level audit with blower door for air leakage & duct tester for system efficiency. The most comprehensive audit available about your home’s energy pathways. Required for Advanced Home Upgrade rebates.
In our experience, for every $ dollar spent on efficiency and conservation there is a savings of about $1.25 on solar cost. It pays to do this work first, plus your home is more comfortable and you’ll have peace of mind knowing your home’s equipment is running accurately & efficiently.
This work starts with home air sealing and insulation, so the heat stays were it is supposed to. From there, we look at your combustion appliances that run on carbon-based gas (HVAC, hot water, etc.), then on to windows, lighting and the smaller appliances. It’s best to have a prioritized check-list, and we can help you do that for your home.
Home Upgrade offers rebates for improvements that strengthen your home’s energy efficiency, and you’ll learn how heating, air conditioning, insulation, water, and other systems in your home are working together and which improvements will most effectively improve home comfort and reduce your energy consumption. Bundle your improvements to receive rebates for high efficiency furnaces and cooling systems, duct sealing and insulation, building air sealing, attic insulation, hot water systems, wall insulation, and more.
