Free, live class: Making Big Money with Home Energy Scores
Tuesday, August 4, 2015, at 10:00 am
The United States consumes more energy than anyone else on the planet--about 20% of the total global demand. Our buildings and our homes—the homes in which we lives—devour 40% of all U.S. energy and 75% of all U.S. electricity. And about 30% of that energy is wasted by our homes. Simply put, our homes waste energy.
InterNACHI is a Home Energy Score national partner with the U.S. Department of Energy to inspect the energy performance of every home in America and lead homeowners toward investing in home energy improvements.

Inspection takes about 30 minutes.

The Home Energy Score is similar to a vehicle's miles-per-gallon rating, and any InterNACHI-Certified Home Energy Inspector in the U.S. can generate a Home Energy Score in less than an hour. The Home Energy Score provides:
  • a score on a scale of 1 to 10;
  • facts about the home and its energy use; and 
  • recommendations generated by the U.S. Department of Energy to improve the score and energy efficiency. 
The Home Energy Score:
  • helps homeowners and home buyers understand how much energy their home is expected to use;
  • provides suggestions for improving its energy efficiency; and also
  • allows homeowners to compare their home's energy performance to other homes nationwide. 


To generate Home Energy Scores, you must:

  1. be an InterNACHI-Certified Home Energy Inspector (online & free for members); 
  2. complete the 3D-house training (online & free for members); and
  3. agree to participate in a Quality Assurance Plan with other local Home Energy Inspector (free for members).
