We believe the best way to reduce your energy bill and improve your home’s comfort is to use a “house as a system” approach.
Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® is our solution.
Home Performance with ENERGY STAR:
The Whole Home Solution
Instead of just focusing on a single problem, Home Performance with ENERGY STAR helps you understand how improvements throughout your home can work together to save energy and increase comfort.
This requires a whole-house approach that views your home as a system with interdependent parts. For example, the efficiency of your heating system is determined not only by your furnace or boiler, but also by your duct work, the amount of air leakage in your home, and the condition of your insulation. If one of these components is not functioning properly, it prevents the entire system from performing efficiently.
Home Performance with ENERGY STAR provides you with a road map for energy savings and connects you with a network of qualified contractors that can help you achieve your energy savings and comfort goals.
6 steps to savings
By following these 6 steps, you can be on your way to saving with Home Performance with ENERGY STAR.
Contact a participating Home Performance Contractor or the Energy Alliance’s Home Performance Contracting Services to schedule your Home Energy Assessment. Your contractor will ask you some questions about your home and explain some things you can do to prepare your home for assessment day.
On the day of the Home Energy Assessment, your Home Performance Contractor will review your concerns and explain the assessment process. During the assessment, the contractor may discuss basic building science principles with you and show you areas where major issues exist.
After your Home Energy Assessment, the contractor will provide you with a comprehensive report that identifies opportunities to improve your energy efficiency and comfort. Your contractor will discuss the report with you in order to develop a work scope that addresses the issues you identified and fits your budget. The outcome of the discussion will create the work scope for your Home Energy Upgrade.
Your Home Performance Contractor will work with other Energy Alliance participating contractors to ensure that the selected efficiency measures are installed properly. All participating contractors are licensed and trained professionals who have the skills and knowledge necessary to install efficiency measures.
Once the Upgrade is completed, the Home Performance Contractor will perform a test-out to ensure that the energy efficiency measures were installed correctly. In addition, quality assurance inspections are conducted on a portion of all Home Energy Upgrades.
Enjoy lower utility costs, better indoor air quality, a more comfortable home,
and a safer living environment for you and your family.
