The pre-construction Home Energy Score process is somewhat different than a typical Home Energy Score assessment. A pre-construction assessment is based on floor plans rather than collecting data in the field and requires knowledge that some Home Energy Score Assessors (HEAs) might not currently possess. Because a pre-construction score is a relatively new feature for Home Energy Score, the US Department of Energy and City of Portland Home Energy Score trainings did not address this type of assessment. Because of this, we are now providing more tools and resources to clarify the process and ensure that all interested HEAs can deliver a pre-construction score if you chose to provide that service.
A New Designation
Earning a designation for pre-construction assessments allows assessors to be listed on this page to indicate they are knowledgeable in completing pre-construction scores. This designation allows potential clients who visit the site page looking for someone to complete a pre-construction Home Energy Score to easily locate a qualified assessor.
Assessors receive this designation by doing the following:
- An assessor takes the pre-construction online test.
- The test asks assessors to review a set of house floor plans and provide answers to questions about the plans.
- Upon completion of the test, Earth Advantage will add an assessor to the listing on this page.
