Home Energy Audit Finds Ways to Save Energy

By: Danny Lipford

Having an energy audit conducted for your home will tell you how much energy your home uses and how you can improve efficiency. You can perform a very general audit yourself, but if you want to really get down to the nitty-gritty, consider hiring a professional who will come in with specialized equipment like blowers doors and infrared cameras.

They will be able to give a thorough, detailed description of where your home is losing energy, where air leaks are located, and what areas are missing insulation. Next, follow through and put their recommendations into action. Soon you’ll have one of the greenest houses on the block along with one of the lowest utility bills.
