Do-It-Yourself Home Energy Audit

If you're not quite ready for a full-blown audit but sense there may be areas in your home that could be improved, the U.S. Department of Energy offers a step-by-step guide on conducting a do-it-yourself home energy audit.

The Do-It-Yourself Home Energy Audit walks you through inspecting four components of your home to determine the potential for energy savings or to decide whether a more thorough, professional audit is warranted:

  • Locating air leaks

  • Insulation

  • Heating and cooling equipment

  • Lighting


Contact a local, professional energy auditor if you determine a full energy audit is necessary.
