Good question! You are no doubt referring to your home's EnerGuide rating.
The EnerGuide rating is based on a scale of 0 to 100 and reflects a home's energy efficiency. This unit of measure was established by the Office of Energy Efficiency (OEE) and allows a home’s energy efficiency to be compared with that of other homes in the same region.
The following table provides some examples of EnerGuide ratings based on home features:
|ENERGUIDE RATING||HOME FEATURES|
|0 to 50||Older home that has not been renovated|
|51 to 65||Older, renovated home|
|66 to 74||Older home with some energy-efficiency improvements or a recently built standard home (prior to 2012)|
|75 to 79||New, energy-efficient home (e.g., a standard home built after 2012)|
|80 to 90||New, very energy-efficient home (e.g., a Novoclimat 2.0 home or an R-2000 home)|
|91 to 100||House requiring little or no purchased energy|
Based on your results, certain improvements could be done on your home. Our Web site contains tools and advice about how to save energy.
