About MyHomeEQ®
 
MyHomeEQ makes it easy to make your home energy efficient. By providing information on the costs and benefits of specific home improvements, access to trusted contractors and cost-reducing rebates and financing, MyHomeEQ will lead you through the energy-efficiency process, making your home more comfortable, efficient and ultimately more valuable. We’re also working with realtors to make sure homebuyers know the value of an efficient home so your home is more valuable to them. We offer:
 
Simplicity. With access to your gas and electric utility usage and information about your home, we can make specific home improvement recommendations, without you having to answer hundreds of detailed questions or paying for an energy audit.
 
Accuracy. We have years of experience estimating energy efficiency and making specific home improvement recommendations. Together with data on 1.1 million homes, that means more accurate MyHomeEQs and recommendations for home improvement.
 
Value. MyHomeEQ is free for you. The costs of making your home more efficient are high enough. We’re here to help you reap the benefits, not lighten your wallet.
 
Comfort. The number one reason people complete home improvements is that it makes their home more comfortable. Everyone wants value. We want you to be comfortable.
