Home Energy Audits

The United States is currently the largest single consumer of energy. Thatís Right! The result is that the average homeowner now spends about $2,200 per year on energy. Continuous heating and air conditioning consumption account for half of home energy costs. With this consumption comes a tremendous amount of wasted energy. Our wasteful use of energy contributes to air pollution problems such as low-level ozone, smog, and global warming. The average familyís carbon footprint is over 11,200 pounds of pollutants, which go directly into the atmosphere each year.

The most direct and inexpensive route for homeowners to take to reduce wasted energy is to have a Home Energy Audit. The primary purpose of a home energy audit is to evaluate the homes energy consumption and make recommendations to eliminate wasted energy and lower monthly energy costs. The following diagram shows areas in the home that an energy audit evaluates:
