The Home Energy Score (HES)

The HES is about gaining knowledge and information about your home. It’s an assessment process that helps you make better decisions about potential upgrades.

An assessor uses a formula developed by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to score your home’s energy use on a scale of 1 to 10. It estimates home energy use, associated costs, and provides energy solutions to cost-effectively improve your home’s efficiency.
