CCI is a Home Energy Score Partner
For each home that is assessed through a Sound Home Plan energy audit, CCI provides a Home Energy Score (HES) at no additional cost.
The U.S. Department of Energy's HES is a credible, nationally recognized product that helps you understand your home's energy performance compared to other homes nationwide and how to improve it cost-effectively. Like a miles-per-gallon rating for vehicles, HES is a quick and simple tool to help homeowners and homebuyers gain useful information about a home's energy use. The HES rates your home’s energy efficiency on a 1-10 scale, where "1" represents the least energy-efficient home and a "10" represents the most energy-efficient home. In addition to your home’s current Score, HES can tell you how much you can improve your home’s Score – as well as how much you can reduce energy costs and carbon dioxide emissions – if you make recommended energy-saving improvements.
