New England Home Energy’s talented staff utilizes advanced technology and software to help homeowner’s lower energy bills. We help establish an energy efficient home at the time of sale which can lead to a higher asking price and a faster sale. Here is a list of services we offer to help you maximize the energy efficiency in your home.
Home Energy Audits
Home Energy Audits include a cost effective total evaluation of the home designed to lower energy bills, improve efficiency, improve overall quality of the home and increase property total resale values.
HERS Ratings - Marketing Energy Efficient Homes
We can provide you with a HERS certificate at the time of sale, the HERS certificate would help set your home apart from other homes that are less energy efficient.
A home that meets code has a HERS Index of 100. For every point above or below 100, the home is that much more or less efficient. If a home receives a 70 it is 30 % more efficient. If the home receives 110 it is 10% less efficient. Therefore lower numbers are better numbers. An index of 0 is a home that produces as much energy as it uses each year. Your HERS certificate would reflect this information.
Energy Efficient Mortgages (EEM)
If you are planning to a buy a home ensuring it has energy efficient upgrades such as a new AC, added insulation, new appliances and energy efficient windows may qualify you in some areas for an Energy Efficient Mortgage. If you already own a home and are looking to refinance and upgrade, an EEM may provide a cost saving solution.
