Recommended Green Apps: Rating your Home’s Energy Efficiency

Eco Easy Home is an app that is a guide to rate your homes energy and eco-efficiency. It is intended for people who are buying a new home and want to assess its eco-efficiency and/or your current home to do some green home improvements. The app uses a scoring system of a variety of factors to rate a home in terms of its energy efficiency and sustainable design.  The rating system has a series of questions and based on those answers a score is assessed.

One of the cool features is house orientation which determines how much sun or natural heating you have.  This then let’s users calculate the solar gain of a particular property. The app is pretty user friendly and easy to navigate around. If you are looking for an inexpensive way to do a quick energy audit, this app might be a good option. Right now it is only available for the iphone for $4.49.
