XeroHome’s badges indicate the confidence you can have in the recommendations for your home.

Every home starts with a white badge. This is the best guess that we have about the upgrades needed for your home based on publicly available sources of data.

For an improved estimate, graduate to a green badge by answering some simple questions about your home (this can be done by clicking “Improve this Estimate” from the navigation bar). A green badge is the minimum level of certainty that we recommend before starting to plan an upgrade project.

For the best recommendations about the upgrades for your home, including health and safety issues, we recommend earning a blue badge by scheduling a home energy audit. A home energy professional will inspect various features in your home, conduct a few tests of your home’s equipment, and determine what portions of your home require a tuneup.
