A new measurement from the U.S. Government will determine the miles per gallon your home gets just as if you were evaluating it like a vehicle. Are you living in a Prius or a Hummer?
Federal agencies are working together to develop such a label for all homes. Currently, new homes seeking the government’s Energy Star label get a HERS rating for energy efficiency. The lower the score, the more efficient.
