Mobile energy audit tool helps contractors tell their energy upgrade story
Home improvement contractors have a new energy auditing tool to help homeowners see the value of green upgrades.
Snugg Home has released an all-new version of their energy assessment software nationwide. SnuggPro 2.0 is a cloud-based laptop and iPad energy auditing and sales tool for residential contractors and auditors. It’s fast to use, easy to learn and creates compelling reports that turn skeptical homeowners into satisfied customers.
SnuggPro creates highly accurate energy savings calculations based on the energy analysis engine from OptiMiser, which is fully compliant with the Building Performance Institute’s 2400 standard.
Contractors can use default pricing or use their own pricing for all individual recommendations as well as customize the type of improvements listed. They can also add any of their own recommendations to the homeowner report such as replacement gutters, a new deck, or a complete kitchen remodel.
The system helps consumers understand energy assessments that seem to be written by engineers for engineers. Page after page of complex technical data and jargon alienates a homeowner instead of encouraging them to actually perform the improvements.
SnuggPro reports are consumer friendly and make it easy for the contractors to present accurate recommendations that are customized to the homeowner’s needs and budget.
Through electric utility Xcel Energy’s Home Energy Audit Program in Colorado, more than 100 contractors have performed almost 5,000 energy audits with the software. Contractors in 16 states are using the tool as well.
Individual contractors and auditors can sign up and use the tool today. Snugg Home offers a 14-Day Free Trial for all new signups as well as free Intro & Training Webinars that show contractors how to unlock their full potential as energy efficiency professionals.
