The Comprehensive Energy Audit is one of our premium services. It includes everything from the Energy Assessment, blower door and duct blaster testing, but you'll also receive infrared digital photos and a HERS rating.
HERS stands for Home Energy Rating System. It's the EPA-endorsed system of rating homes for energy efficiency and can be a powerful marketing tool for selling your home in the future.
We know the gas milage for our cars and can estimate yearly fuel costs. With a HERS rating, it's like knowing the energy mileage for your house. It's a recognized tool in the mortgage industry that estimates how much you can expect to spend on energy in that home. The closer your HERS rating is to zero, the closer you are to paying nothing for electricity.
For every $1 decrease in annual energy costs, the market value of a home increases by $20, according to a study published in the Appraisal Journal. If you decrease your energy costs by $300 per year, the value of your home increases by $6,000.
