A home energy audit, also known as a home energy assessment, can help you understand the bigger picture of your home’s energy usage. With the help of an audit, you can determine how much energy your house is consuming, where your house is losing energy and which problem areas and corrections you should prioritize in order to make your house more efficient and comfortable. A home energy audit should be your first step before making energy efficient home improvements and adding a renewable energy system to your home.
A professional home energy audit provides a thorough assessment of your home’s energy consumption. In addition to a room-by-room examination of the house, an auditor can use devices such as fan doors, infrared cameras and (rarely) perfluorocarbon test gas.
While a professional energy audit provides the most complete picture of your home’s energy usage, a careful self-assessment can help you pinpoint problem areas and prioritize your energy efficiency improvements.
