|Home Energy Audit|
To perform a Home Energy Inspection, the inspector conducts a brief walk-through of the home and collects 45 data points related to home energy.
The inspector then enters the data into a web-based energy calculator developed by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy to:
During the home energy audit the house is scored on a scale from 1 to 100. A 100 would represent a home with perfect energy performance whereas a 1 would represent a home that needs significant energy upgrades. This score can be used to compare homes in the San Diego area and beyond.
A higher score generally means a lower energy bill and a more efficient home (with less of an environmental impact).
The Home Energy inspection report lists recommendations for energy upgrades that are specific to the house, as well as an estimate of how much these improvements can reduce the utility bill. The report is based upon the data collected, the national average of costs for installation of specific energy improvements, and the state averages of the utility costs.
Some of the recommendations for energy upgrades are simple for a homeowner to do. Others require more effort and investment but promise large financial savings over the years.
