FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
InterNACHI Approved as Partner with U.S. Department of Energy Home Energy Score
BOULDER, Colo. (May 31, 2012)—InterNACHI, the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, is pleased to announce that it will work in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) as a Partner to provide Colorado homeowners with a Home Energy Score.
You can find InterNACHI listed on the Department of Energy.gov website.
The Home Energy Score is based on the DOE's national program, launching nationally in 2013, which offers a quick way for homeowners to understand how their home's energy performance compares to that of other homes in the same region. And, the Home Energy Score is more than just a simple label. It also provides recommendations for energy upgrades, as well as an estimate of how much these improvements can reduce the homeowner's utility bills.
As the nation’s largest non-profit inspector accreditation organization, InterNACHI is committed to educating U.S. homeowners by helping them understand the functions, materials, systems and components of their properties to reduce the cost of their utility bills by making their homes more energy-efficient.
