It’s as easy as “A-B-C”
The Heating Energy Assessment Tool (HEAT) from AREVS is a RESNET Approved, easy-to-use web-based application designed for use by home energy professionals, realtors, government program affiliates, home appraisers, home assessors, and even homeowners. The HEAT application will quickly show whether or not a home is in need of energy retrofits or upgrades. Using algorithms that are normalized for house size and geographical location, and information from its utility bill during the heating season, HEAT provides a heating energy assessment for a home in less than 5 minutes. A simple A+ through F grade range gives instant understanding of home heating performance. The full HEAT Report provides the NEL (Normalized Energy Load) specific to the home, as well as projected annual Heating, Domestic Hot Water, and cooling costs.
Two valuable reports are generated for a home evaluated with HEAT.
First, a Heating Energy Assessment rates the general range of energy efficiency of the home and recommends energy savings measures, specific to the rated home’s current energy efficiency status, prioritized in order of maximum return on investment.
