What is EPS?
We want you to have a more comfortable, safe, and energy efficient home. Energy professionals can help you make that happen.
The Energy Performance Score ("EPS" for short) is an exciting new tool that provides a standardized estimate of a homes energy use and associated carbon emissions. The EPS allows for comparisons of one home's energy use to another, without the influence of varying occupant behavior. Homeowners can also use the tool to compare the typical energy use of the house in its current state versus what it could be like after energy upgrades.
The Energy Performance Score (EPS) is being used by utility programs, local and state governments, community-based organizations, and independent energy assessors across the nation. As a homeowner or energy assessor, you can access specific information about a program in your community and create your own EPS account.
How it Works
The first step is to analyze your home's energy efficiency and identify opportunities for improvement. An Energy Performance Score (EPS) Audit can do just that! A certified EPS Auditor can inspect your home and provide a Scorecard that assesses current energy consumption and predicts what the savings would be after making improvements. Along with the Scorecard, a detailed Energy Analysis and Upgrades report explains the Auditor's recommended upgrades and analyzes their impact on energy and cost reduction.
After reviewing the results of your EPS audit, your next step is to implement the recommendations. While you can make some minor fixes yourself, we recommend that you contact a professional contractor that specializes in energy retrofit projects. Through our participating programs, we can help you find qualified contractors in your area.
Home improvement can be expensive, but luckily there are many tax rebates and financing programs available to help with these costs. We can help you learn about all the different options.
