Your Home Energy Snapshot will give you a clear indication of how your electricity usage compares to the electricity usage of similar homes in your area.

Five Factors

Five major elements impact the energy efficiency and electricity usage of your home.

Home Efficiency Ratings are updated once per month, but you can request Home Energy Snapshots as often as you like. Snapshots requested before the next month's usage update will not include any new usage data.

To receive a Snapshot, your home must be at least one year old.

In-Home Consultation

If your Home Efficiency Rating indicates inefficiencies in electricity use, we may recommend scheduling an In-Home Consultation. At your request, a Reliant Home Energy Consultant will visit your home, review your Snapshot with you, thoroughly examine your home and leave you with your Closer Look, an at-a-glance guide containing your home's personalized assessment and practical solutions for improvement. 

Call 1-855-887-21901-855-887-2190 to schedule your In-Home Consultation.

Additional Tools

Because Energy Compare measures your home against a smaller geographic area and a more limited group of homes than the Home Energy Snapshot, the comparison may differ.
