How can a Scorecard Assessment help you?

How does it work?
Residential Efficiency Scorecard Process

How long does it take? 

A Scorecard Assessment takes between 1.5 and 2.5 hours onsite depending on the size of the home. On arrival the Assessor will ask you to sign a Scorecard Privacy Statement before the assessment can commence, they will need access to all areas of the home (including the ceiling space if possible to check insulation), and will need to take evidentary photos of specific items onsite.  The findings will be reviewed with you at the end of the assessment.  This is your opportunity to ask any other questions you may have about energy efficiency and sustainability of your home.

What do you get out of it?

Find out how good, bad or otherwise your home rates in terms of cost to run and a Scorecard Certificate showing the Star Rating.  We will also advise  on what you can do to improve it, what the priorities are depending on your specific circumstances and time of year, and provide a report for you to refer to.  Note we can also do Scorecard Assessments off the plan for renovations and new builds, enabling you to maximise benefit in terms of comfort, future cost to run and value when reselling.

How much does it cost?

An average 3 bedroom home costs around $420 (inc GST), the actual cost will depend on the size of the home.  Smaller homes will be a bit less, larger and more complex homes a bit more.

Do you offer a Seniors Discount?

Yes we do, 10% seniors and concession holders card discount is available.

“Danielle was excellent, very knowledgeable and practical. We especially appreciated her suggestions as they were prioritised and took into account the energy savings versus the money spent to upgrade or improve. Highly recommend this service. Danielle helped us to decide where to spend our money to improve our home energy usage.”   Cristin B, Oakleigh, VIC

“Danielle and Green Moves provided a full energy audit report and “Victorian Residential Energy Scorecard” for my apartment. Danielle was very knowledgeable, professional and friendly throughout the process. The report Danielle provided was much more thorough than I expected and prioritised energy efficiency improvements based on the savings versus the upfront cost. Given various improvements possible, this was highly valuable and took the guesswork out of where to direct improvements. Further, the report detailed expected electricity use given the apartment’s appliances and highlighted a large portion of ‘unidentified usage’ that was tracked down to a secondary water heater that I was not previously aware of – switching this off has halved my electricity usage!! I highly recommend Green Moves.” Dan B. Fitzroy, VIC

” We chose GreenMoves Australia to complete an Energy Efficiency Scorecard after considering a number of local suppliers. The booking and assessment process was simple and prompt. We enjoyed having the assessor visit and complete the assessment. She engaged well, was very thorough, answered a lot of questions, and explained things extremely well. The report provided complete observations, advice, and general information. Despite being stunned by the positive outcome rating we will be undertaking the few recommended additional improvements. Thank you for the prompt provision of this service. ”   Kerry C & Cushla C, Cranbourne West, VIC

“Thank you for an excellent report. The assessment confirmed many of my thoughts about what I can do to improve the energy efficiency of my home. The report has given me some great advice about how I can achieve great results.  I’m surprised at the score my home was given, I thought it would be much lower. What surprised me even more is how efficient this home could be with the right renovations and additions.   Your assessor was very thorough, explained what she was doing and gave me some simple things I could do to quickly and easily improve the efficiency of my home. On the day she answered all my questions and anything she was unsure about she addressed in her report. I am pleased I approached your service to help me as you have given me the guidance I need to plan my renovations.”  Marina N, Fawkner VIC

“Thanks for the report, its a great point of reference for us. We really appreciated your thoroughness and expertise. I was hoping for someone to give the house a full top-to-bottom assessment and talk us through exactly what we need to do; and that’s what we got. You really added value. I feel the most useful part of this exercise was getting your opinion on the more detailed questions eg the hot water debacle. The scorecard is a handy guide and starting point, but it’s all the detailed discussion with you that gave us an understanding of the situation and the confidence to tackle some of the big ticket items. Also appreciated your strictly non-shyster approach (ie no hard sell, providing three options for all recommended suppliers etc).” Bez H, Caulfield North VIC

“Thanks very much for performing the assessment for me. Your assessor was great and very knowledgable.  I will be recommending you to my friends and colleagues.” Luke G, Melbourne
