If you are interested in buying a home or want to learn about the energy code and how to make your home more energy efficient, this checklist provides a quick way to assess energy performance and identify opportunities to improve energy efficiency.
You can use the checklist to verify a few of the energy code requirements that are easy to identify. While this checklist doesn’t include every requirement, it will help you assess a new home and make an informed decision about the quality of construction and the likelihood that the home will use energy efficiently.
The Spanish version of this checklist can be found here.
In the process of buying a new or existing home? Ask your home inspector to help you identify whether the new home meets state minimum efficiency standards and, for existing homes, energy efficiency improvements. Print and share this checklist with your home inspector.
