Let's be honest: Thanks to our yearly tax ordeal, the word "audit" has the power to make us pretty nervous. But unlike a tax audit that can be aggravating and costly, an energy audit is a smart investment that keeps paying off for as long as you own your house.
Heating and cooling make up the largest percent of energy usage in a home – but it's not just the HVAC system that affects this number. Insulation, leaky ductwork, and air leakage are also factors.
Within the eight energy-consumption categories for a typical house, there are numerous factors that affect energy use. For example, water heating expenses depend on the efficiency of the water heater, the types of showerheads in use, pipe insulation, dishwasher and washing machine efficiency and overall hot water demand. Heating and cooling costs depend on many factors as well: insulation levels, air leakage, duct leakage, and HVAC system efficiency, just for starters.
Through various tests, inspections and calculations, a complete energy audit evaluates all of the features and conditions that factor in your home's overall energy performance. When completes your Home Energy Checkup, you'll see exactly how your energy dollars are being spent and where your best savings opportunities are.

A Home Energy Checkup is definitely the best resource to identify energy problems in your home. Many of the energy audits subsidized by local utilities or state programs are woefully incomplete, even when they include free features like weatherstripping or fluorescent light bulbs.
When you get one of these limited energy audits, you're missing out on major information. You may have major air leaks that are hard to find, a furnace that isn't venting properly, or a ductwork system that's dumping air from your attic or basement into your living space.
To make sure you do the right things in the right order, invest in Dr. Energy Saver's comprehensive and customized Home Energy Checkup.
