Save energy with ENERGY STAR Home Advisor

For Immediate Release:

Looking for an easy way to improve your home s energy efficiency, comfort, and value?

Check out the ENERGY STAR Home Advisor, an online tool that can help you discover many ways to save energy and money. The Home Advisor will help create a profile of your home s energy efficiency features, send you a list of customized energy-saving recommendations, help you learn about financial incentives, and track your progress.

The Home Advisor provides three simple steps:

  1. Create your home s energy profile. In as little as 5 minutes, you can develop your MY ENERGY STAR profile page and get a place to store your energy data in one location.
  2. Get customized recommendations. Once you have a personalized profile page, you can view energy-saving recommendations tailored to your needs as well as latest ENERGY STAR information on products.
  3. Improve your efficiency and track your results. You can build your own to-do list and gauge your impact. For instance, with each energy-saving measure implemented, the Home Advisor will calculate and display how your actions are reducing your carbon footprint.

Each time you log into your MY ENERGY STAR profile page, it will alert you to rewards and other incentives that are available for your energy measures. For example, you may be eligible for rebates for CFL and LED bulbs, incentives for installing ENERGY STAR appliances, rebates for high efficiency HVAC equipment, and more.

ENERGY STAR is a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency program that helps businesses and individuals save money and protect our climate through superior energy efficiency.
