The report contains information about the efficiency of major systems in the home and recommendations for energy upgrades. The recommendations, energy costs, and energy savings are general estimates based on national installation cost averages for specific energy improvements and state average utility costs. The report only considers the home or building's fixed attributes and applies standard assumptions about occupants' behavior.
