"Phil, I went to the link also and was quit surprised by the results. I'm living in an Energy Star house that I built and the results are quit surprising without knowing what equipment, windows and insulation I have in the house. I could see…"

"I went to the website. It was wildly inaccurate on heating costs even before I air sealed and insulated (did not use blower door, IR camera or comp-u-tater). The only gizmo I used was the brain of an old school Carpenter updated with new found…"

"No.  It will not be available to all.  You will have to be associated with one of the partners.  You will also have to be BPI or RESNET accredited.  I suggested they allow ICC certified professionals, state licensed home…"

"Tom, one of my points from the question above is, will it become available to all.  The term generally has so far been used to imply all, but the fine print, so to speak, say not.  As for making it available to the non-profits, my biggest…"

"I don't believe there are currently any for-profit partners utilizing the tool, of any size.  My clients respond well when I tell them I have applied a rating "similar to the one being developed by DOE."  I tell them I like…"

"While we are getting updates, has anything changed that will allow independent energy auditors to utilize SCORE.  As last I determined, I would NOT have access to this tool, yet some large competitor might, making it a tool I would rather not…"

"Evan, I 100% agree with you.  In order for the HEScore to launch successfully, the tests and technical data must be flawless. Congrats for the excellent work at LBNL ! The wait for everything rolling out successfully will be well worth…"

Evan Mills replied to John Webb's discussion DOE Home Energy SCORE
"DOE believes it is best to take the time up front to do the technical work required to get this to a good spot for launching, rather than putting out something before it's ready.  Thanks to those of you who have shown patience. Let me take…"

"I agree. The Federal government should stop spending money it doesn’t have. However, in this case the money has already been spent and no one received any benefit. LBL got their money in the stimulus. The bureaucrats got theirs in a…"
