Energy Audit Checklist

It’s never a bad idea to do an energy audit on your home, whether your motivation is shaving a few bucks from your energy bill or reducing your carbon footprint and helping fight global climate change. Here is a quick check list to get you started.

Reduce Air Leaks

Check baseboards, flooring edges, wall junctures, electrical outlets, window frames, doors, attic hatches, fireplaces and wall/window-mounted air conditioners. Caulking and weatherstripping are two simple and effective remedies for leaks that you find.
