Energy-efficient homes have many advantages. They are more comfortable year-round, are less expensive to heat and cool, have healthier indoor air and have a reduced environmental impact.

Several key features have the most impact on how energy efficient a home is. With the City of Bloomington’s new Time-of-Sale Energy Disclosure ordinance, inspectors collect information about these key features before homes are listed for sale. These include heating and cooling systems, water heaters, wall and attic insulation, and windows. The energy information is summarized into an energy score and report. These resources are available to prospective homebuyers at open houses and online. View home energy scores and reports at and click on “Find Energy Scores.”
