The Home Energy Score (HES) is similar to a miles-per-gallon (MPG) rating for a vehicle. The HES is generated after a brief home inspection from a Department of Energy (DOE) qualified specialist, called a Home Energy Score Assessor. The HES comes in a report that summarizes the home energy performance on a simple 10-point scale, where a “10” is the most efficient rating. The report also provides projected savings and how to increase your score if certain home-improvement measures are installed.

Features of a Home Energy Score

  • The process is simple, convenient, non-invasive and takes about one-hour to complete
  • You get a six-page report about your home's energy efficiency performance with recommendations

My husband and I have an EJ Home that was badly in need of insulation in the walls. I'm so glad that we chose The Insulation Man to do our insulation project. Steve, who came to do our estimate, was knowledgeable and personable.
