What is a Home Energy Score?

A Home Energy Score is a measure of the home’s energy use and costs, similar to a miles-per-gallon rating on a car. It helps home buyers compare energy costs and performance between homes and provides buyers and sellers with information on money-saving home improvements. The Home Energy Score uses a 1 through 10 scale where a 10 represents the most energy efficient homes. The scale is adjusted for local climate.

What’s included in the Home Energy Score Report?

The report will be based on information gathered during the home energy assessment and goes beyond a typical home inspection. You’ll get:

  • An energy efficiency score using information found during the assessment (foundation, roof, walls, insulation, windows, heating, cooling, and hot water heater)
  • An energy use estimate assuming average use and behavior
  • Recommendations for improvements to save energy
  • A "Score with Improvements" with the home's expected score if energy-saving improvements are completed

The Portland Home Energy Score assessment will look at the home’s insulation and air sealing, heating and ventilation, and potential for cost-effective energy efficiency upgrades.
