Are you on the Market for a Green Home?
WHAT MAKES A HOME ENERGY-EFFICIENT?
An energy evaluation provides useful information that can come in handy for both sellers and buyers. The service includes:
A visit by an energy advisor – an energy advisor will evaluate the home’s energy performance from the basement to the attic.
Home energy use information – the evaluation provides detailed information about a home’s energy performance and which components are the best retrofit options for reducing consumption.
An EnerGuide rating and home label – following the evaluation, an EnerGuide rating and label will be affixed to the electrical panel. A second label with an improved rating is provided if the homeowner conducts upgrades based on the energy advisor’s recommendations.
Personalized recommendations – these recommendations can help homeowners make informed decisions about which upgrades or renovations would save the most energy and money.
