By submitting basic project information, users receive individualized tips based on U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development guidelines for energy-efficient housing rehabilitation. The advisor also provides specific costs, savings, and payback periods for each recommended measure. See the Energy Efficient Rehab Advisor Web site.
