A home energy audit is a report generated by a licensed professional who is specially trained to examine your home's major heating and cooling systems. They will make recommendations to help you improve your home's energy efficiency and lower your energy costs.
Common recommendations include sealing cracks around doors and windows, improving insulation in your home and replacing old appliances with more energy efficient ones.
Your home energy audit provides a convenient "to-do" list. You'll know exactly what needs to be done to make your home more energy efficient, and you can decide what you want to do, when you want to do it and how much you want to spend.
