Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


How long does the assessment take?

Depending on the square footage of your house we should be in and out between 45 minutes to 1 hour. More than seventy pieces of home information are collected during an energy assessment. Information about a home’s envelope (foundation, insulation, walls, windows) as well as its heating, cooling and hot water systems will be entered into energy modeling software.

What to prepare for the assessment?

The assessor needs access to any available basements, crawl spaces, attic spaces, and heating/cooling/water heater.

How do I know if my home requires a Home Energy Assessment?

If you are publicly listing or advertising your home for sale in any manner, and your home is located within the City of Portland, City of Milwaukie, or City of Hillsboro jurisdictional boundaries then the home would require a Home Energy Score Rating. To find out if your house is in the Portland boundaries enter your address here and check jurisdiction. For Milwaukie boundaries enter your address here to check jurisdiction.
