Perform Your Own Home Energy Assessment

(Possible Cost Savings: 5%-30% on Energy Bills)

Do it yourself home energy assessments can help you save big and go green! You can easily and quickly evaluate your home for efficiency and reservation with these four steps:

  1. Start by locating air leaks, or drafts around windows and doors. Seal up leaks with caulk or weather stripping and prepare to save anywhere from 5% to 30% on energy bills per year.
  2. Next, check insulation for heat loss through the ceilings and walls.
  3. Inspect heating and cooling equipment. If you own a forced-air furnace, be sure to check and change filters every month or two; and replace with a new unit if older than 15 years.
  4. Check lighting. Use lower watt bulbs and consider purchasing energy saving bulbs.
