How  Does Your Home Measure Up?
Assess the energy efficiency of your home:  EPA's Home Energy Yardstick  provides a simple assessment of your home's annual energy use compared to similar homes. By answering a few basic questions about your home, you can get:
  • Your home's Home Energy Yardstick score (on a scale of 0 to 10);
  • Insights into how much of your home's energy use is related to heating and cooling versus other everyday uses like appliances, lighting, and hot water;
  • Links to guidance from ENERGY STAR on how to increase your home's score, improve comfort, and lower utility bills; and
  • An estimate of your home's annual carbon emissions.
