How to Know That Your Home Is Energy Efficient?

by jsgs45 on May 19, 2010

Energy rating tells you how energy efficient your home is. An energy rating normally engrosses a scrutiny by a specialized energy rater certified under HERS (home energy rating system). The inspector may be from the nationally accredited HERS or HERS under the state authority catering to various Wichita Falls, TX electric companies.

An energy rater essentially will scrutinize the energy-related aspects of your home, for example window efficiency, insulation levels, cooling and heating systems, and air leakage. Once the inspection is done, the energy rater will provide you a report mentioning your home’s energy rating plus an assessment of yearly energy use and the electric rates. The energy rater may also recommend the necessary home improvements along with their costs in his report. The home rating report may at times also include the savings linked with an energy efficient home.

If you are looking for an energy efficient mortgage, your home rating report should verify it as an energy efficient home or that the suggested home improvements are low cost. In the end, any home improvement will save you more money than you will spend in implementing them.

The lender generally calculates the costs of home improvements and saving from them before sanctioning the EEM. In a nutshell, we can say that the home energy rating is the key to getting the energy efficient mortgage approved. Many state electric providers offer such mortgages. Contact any electric provider for details.
