One of the best ways to determine how to reduce the amount of energy used in your home is by conducting an energy audit. Your local utility provider will often conduct the audit at no cost, or you can hire a private company.
Tests on the windows, door, and walls are conducted to check for air infiltration. The ductwork of your heating and cooling (HVAC) system is also examined for air leaks, which can account for 25% – 40% loss of the conditioned air in your home.
