What is an Energy Report?
An Energy Report is an official analysis undertaken by a residential energy rating company.
It tells you if you meet the NatHERS requirements and advises architects and builders on the energy efficiency of their house designs. An Energy Report can also help buyers understand the performance of a home they may be interested in purchasing.
They take into account the layout, materials and construction of each room in your house and provide you with a final rating of energy efficiency.
An Energy Report includes a detailed account of the properties of each zone of your house that affect energy use.
This home energy audit report may help inform adjustments to your building plans and improve the energy efficiency of your final build.
