Home Energy Audit
A home energy audit is the first step to assess how much energy your home consumes and to evaluate what measures you can take to make your home more energy efficient. An audit will show you problems that may, when corrected, save you significant amounts of money over time. During the audit, you can pinpoint where your house is losing energy. Audits also determine the efficiency of your home's heating and cooling systems. An audit may also show you ways to conserve hot water and electricity. A professional auditor uses a variety of techniques and equipment to determine the energy efficiency of a structure. For more on Energy Audits visit the US Department of Energy's website.
