Home Energy Assessment

The program promoting energy assessments is run through the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, (NYSERDA) program called Home Performance with Energy Star® . The goal of this program is to begin to make existing homes more energy efficient, while providing incentives for homeowners to install more efficient appliances.

A Home Energy Assessment is performed on your house by a certified Building Performance Institute (BPI Certified) contractor. After signing up with the Home Performance with Energy Star® program, you will receive a reservation number. Once you receive your reservation number, you will have a BPI contractor come to your home, and diagnose what in the house can be improved to increase the overall home efficiency.

Certain improvements on your home can be made cheaper through incentives through NYSERDA. This makes buying efficient appliances as cheap as possible, and will ultimately reduce the cost necessary to run a household.
