Energy Efficiency Assessment
BESO Energy Assessments Reveal Individualized Energy Improvement Opportunities
Developed by the Department of Energy and its national laboratories, the Home Energy Score™ provides home owners, buyers, and renters directly comparable and credible information about a home’s energy use. Like a miles-per-gallon rating for a car, the Home Energy Score is based on a standard assessment of energy-related assets to easily compare energy use across the housing market. We utilize this assessment for BESO compliance.
