Residential Efficiency Scorecard Assessments

Looking for ways to make your house more comfortable and cheaper to run?

Get a Scorecard assessment and clear up the confusion.

The Scorecard gives you a star rating for your home, like the star rating on your fridge, and suggestions for how to improve your rating. The Scorecard has been developed by the Victorian Government to help Victorians better understand the energy performance of their homes and to make informed choices about improving the quality of their living environment, while saving money on their gas and electricity bills. Scorecard is delivered by independent accredited assessors using the government-supported Scorecard webtool. The assessor rates the energy efficiency of your home's construction, fixed appliances, and other key features such as solar PV energy production. The Scorecard also rates how comfortable your home is in hot weather.
