Assess Entire Household Energy Usage

Assess the Energy Efficiency of Your Home and See How it Measures Up.

EPA’s Home Energy Yardstick provides a simple assessment of your home’s annual energy use compared to similar homes. By answering a few basic questions about your home, you can get:

  • Your home’s Home Energy Yardstick score (on a scale of 0 to 10).
  • Insights into how much of your home’s energy use is related to heating and cooling versus other everyday uses like appliances, lighting, and hot water.
  • Links to guidance from ENERGY STAR® on how to increase your home’s score, improve comfort, and lower utility bills
  • An estimate of your home’s annual carbon emissions.
