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.
According to the Idaho Department of Agriculture, inspectors are not required to be licensed to conduct a visual inspection; however, inspectors may not recommend any treatment and must refer out to a licensed professional.
