How Does Your Home Measure Up?

27 May 2014

When I ask people if they are open to having an energy assessment (also known as an audit) performed on their home I often get the response, “I already know my home would perform horribly!” Don’t let your home intimidate you. Get a home energy assessment to start controlling your homes energy use, instead of the other way around!

There are many factors that contribute to how your home uses, and wastes energy that can often only be explained and tested by professionals. A home energy assessment is the best way to understand these factors and to figure out your homes baseline energy use. An assessment will also help you understand where to focus your efforts toward energy efficiency in your home. Contact your local utility for home assessment options.

Nervous about getting a home energy assessment? This great infographic from Energy.gov will explain common steps taken when auditors come into your home.
