What’s Your Home Energy Score?

Put two Cincinnati homes up against one another and chances are you’re going to see a remarkable difference. So many different elements can factor into how a home has held up over the years, including building materials, the home’s age, exposure, mechanicals and many, many more. Comparing homes in terms of their energy usage can seem impossible based upon all of this, but it doesn’t have to be, and this is where the “Home Energy Score” comes into play.

Since rating a home’s energy usage can be difficult, a HES helps to level the playing field and make it easier to understand how well your home is performing. It essentially helps to determine the ranks of your home in terms of comfort and energy efficiency, both of which should be the focus of all Cincinnati homeowners.

Why Get a Home Energy Score?

There are a variety of reasons why you might want to consider getting a home energy score for your Cincinnati home. Chief among these is the fact that a HES can help to give you a sense of what changes need to be made in order to improve energy efficiency within the home. Once the necessary work is done, you can expect increased indoor comfort, lower energy bills and a sense of wellbeing that comes along with knowing that the air you and your family breathe is safe and clean.

In addition to the above benefits, a home energy score simply gives you a clear view of where your home stands in general compared to the energy efficiency of other homes. Many people go years wondering, yet rarely come upon answers that help them to truly know what they’re dealing with. In most cases, a home energy score is the answer.

The Home Energy Score Process

The process of getting a HES is simple. A professional from National Heating and Air will come in to do a walk-through of your home and gather information regarding its energy usage. Once enough data is compiled, a home energy score between 1 and 10 is given, with 10 being awarded to homes that are exemplary of energy efficiency. Depending upon where your home places, it may be time to make some changes to improve your home’s efficiency, such as air sealing and improving insulation.

At National, we pride ourselves on providing customers with home energy scores that can help them to determine how to take their homes in a forward direction. We’re always on-hand to answer any questions that might pop up, and we work with customers to ensure that the plan we devise will not only fit their budgets, but also marked improvements to their homes. We know just how much of a different home performance can make and want each of our customers to enjoy the comfort and lower energy bills that come along with this for themselves.
