What is the Home Energy Score?

Department of Energy’s Home Energy Score provides home owners, buyers, and renters directly comparable and reliable information regarding the home’s energy use.

Home energy scores are calculated based on a combination of factors including the size of the house, how old it is, whether it’s insulated well, and the efficiency of the heating and cooling systems. A high score indicates a home is likely to cost less to heat and cool over the long term because it uses less energy. A low score could mean a homeowner needs to spend more money to heat or cool a home.-” The Home Energy Score is a standardized measurement of how much energy a house uses per year.”
