The majority of these homes (as much as 72 percent) were built before the adoption of modern energy codes in home construction in the late 1980s. (Energy codes impose minimum requirements for energy efficiency upon builders.) These are our “Ford Pintos.” Old homes, of course, can be renovated to achieve more modern standards, but in most cases they are not. It is estimated that 60 percent of our residences possess inadequate levels of insulation.2Overseas…: Overseas… Overseas, roughly 30 European countries have a somewhat similar rating and labeling scheme in response to the EU Energy Performance of Buildings Directive initiated in 2007Goal – SCORE!: Goal – SCORE! The Home Energy Score Program is ultimately able to show that a home with a higher score can be sold at a premium or more quickly Considerable homeowner support for retrofittingHow the score works…: How the score works… The Home Energy Score requires a simple walk-through by a qualified assessor, noting 40-50 separate data points critical to energy performance . These data points are then fed into a software package that subsequently determines the home ranking. The walk-through is designed to be quick and inexpensive for the homeowner, but nonetheless valid.How to start doing scores…: How to start doing scores… This webinar will explain the processes, procedures, certifications required, and background on the Home Energy Score Program. Spirit Foundation, a U.S. Department of Energy Partner, will help you grow your current business through the Home Energy Score, or assist you with starting and implementing the HEScore in your community.Facts : Facts Real estate markets are essentially local, and it makes sense to begin at local levels and build outward. Some cities will embrace the label and incorporate it. The Home energy Score will increase a home’s resale value, then the message will spread far and wide. A green premium in one community does not mean a green premium in all. The French researcher Francoise Bartiaux has asserted that understanding and accepting home energy labels is a process that must be “socially learned” over time . The miles-per-gallon sticker on a car, for example, was not immediately understood when it first appeared some 35 years ago . We must educate communities, and homeowners. Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory: Lawrence Berkeley National LaboratoryPowerPoint Presentation: The Scoring Tool is a free internet based software program, available for use by Home Energy Score Qualified Assessors. I pad and iPhone app will be available in the next 30 - 45 days.The score is accurate without a blower door, and expensive equipment. We will always offer a comprehensive audit to the homeowner, and is required for financing retrofits.: The score is accurate without a blower door, and expensive equipment. We will always offer a comprehensive audit to the homeowner, and is required for financing retrofits.SCORE!: Assessor ID : Each Home is given a unique ID, which is used in the financing process and Quality Assurance process. SCORE! The Score with Improvements assumes all recommendations will be implemented. The 10 year savings estimate reflects the gross savings associated with the improvements (i.e., a reduction in utility bills). The Top 20% indicator allows the homeowner to see how the top energy-performing large or small homes in their area score. Assessment date: T he date that the in-home assessment was performed.PowerPoint Presentation: Jlkjljjljj;lj;jlkjl;jl;jljljlkjlkjlkjl;jlkjlkjkljlkjkljlkjlkjlkjlkjl;kjlkjlkjkljl;kjlkjlk;jl;kjlkjlkjl;kjlkjlkjlkjlkjl;kjlkjlkjl;kjlkjlkjlkjlkjlkjlkjl;kjlkjlkjl;kjl;kjl;kjl;kjlkjlkjlk;jlk;jl;kjlkjlkjlkjlkjlkjlkj;ljlkjl;kjlk;jlk;jl;kjl;kjlkjl;kjl;klj;lkjl;jljljlkjlkjlkjlkjljkljlkjlkjljlllklljlkjlkjlkjl;jl;jl;kjlkjkhkjhhkjWhat the pilots showed us…: What the pilots showed us…PowerPoint Presentation: Jlkj;ljlkjkljlkjlk;jlk;jlk;jlk;jlk;jlk;jlk;jl;kjlk;j;jopjlk;jl;kjl;kjljljojlk;lklkjlkjlkjlkjlk;jlk;jlk;jlk;jl;kjkljkl;jlkjlkjlk;jlkjlk;jl;kjlk;j;lkjlkjolooohhoholknlnjlkjlkjlkjljlk;j;ljjl;j;ljljlj;jl;jlSpirit Foundation – About us…: Spirit Foundation – About us… Spirit Foundation is a non-profit with corporate offices located in St. Louis, Mo.
