NHSaves, a collaboration of New Hampshire utilities, has made it easier for people to assess their home’s energy efficiency and to qualify for incentives.

A new online tool, the Home Heating Index (HHI), is part of the NHSaves Audits and Weatherization program at nhsaves.com/programs/energy-audits-weatherization/.

It helps customers determine if their home qualifies for an audit that could ultimately help them earn incentives and rebates, as well as heat and cool their home more efficiently.

NHSaves is a collaboration of Eversource, Liberty Utilities, New Hampshire Electric Co-Op and Unitil, helps New Hampshire residents, businesses and municipalities reduce energy costs and protect our environment.

The HHI tool identifies homes with high energy usage per square foot. Using the online tool, customers plug in their heating usage over one year, the conditioned square footage of their home, their provider and zip code. Customers are then provided with an index of their home’s energy efficiency.

“In the past, folks had to print, sign and mail in the application with copies of fuel-use records,” says Phil LaMoreaux, Energy Solutions Program Administrator at New Hampshire Electric Co-Op. “Now they can just upload an image.”

Incentives, contractor relationships and access to low-interest financing contribute to potential savings. Through enhanced weatherization, customers can save on all of their energy use, including electricity for cooling during the summer, as well as on oil, propane and wood heating costs during colder months.
