A Certified Home Energy Rater/Assessor/Home Inspector uses their expertise in construction, building systems such as electrical and HVAC, and energy conservation to identify ways a business or home can improve their energy consumption. They investigate ways a building may be using more energy than necessary and craft detailed reports on opportunities for improvement. This can save businesses and people a lot of money.
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that individuals can save 5%-30% on their energy bill by making the upgrades recommended from an energy audit. Certified Home Energy Raters/Assessors/Home Inspectors may recommend additional or new energy-saving systems that have an initial cost to the buyer but the future cost reduction in energy usage makes it a worthy investment.
