Honeywell has announced that it is enhancing the home energy assessment programs the company designs and manages for utilities with new software. The Honeywell Residential Energy Assessment Tool will support a range of programs, from basic walk-through assessments to diagnostics-driven home performance reviews.

The new tool makes the home assessment process more interactive by allowing technicians to share results on-site and in real time, the company says. For in-home assessments, the software provides in-depth reports for customers that list tailored efficiency opportunities (e.g., tuning air conditioners, adding insulation), available utility rebates and incentives, savings and payback calculations for the suggested improvements, and educational tips. Utilities, in turn, can monitor activity and track outcomes at the home or program level.
