Home Energy Audit

If you want to make your home more comfortable and to use less energy, get an energy audit before you replace windows, wrap your hot water tank, install solar hot water or make any major improvements.

Energy Audit Furnace Check

An energy audit will tell you how energy-efficient your home is and recommend ways to reduce your energy use and cut your energy bills. An energy audit will also address related problems such as mold, dampness, drafts, ice dams and indoor air quality. You receive a simple written report, which includes a list of recommended improvements, ranked by cost and energy savings. You'll know whether to seal air leaks, replace windows, or to put your money into extra insulation, for example. You may want to make some improvements right away and to plan others for the future.

The Energy Co-op now offers comprehensive energy audits, priced at just $200*. Contact Paul Fleckenstein, our Co-op Efficiency program manager, to schedule an energy audit for your home.

* For homes under 2,500 sq. ft. Ask for a quote for larger homes. Many other companies charge $400 or more for energy audits.

    My wife and I are committed to reducing our fossil energy footprint, and have been heating our home with wood, trying to use our old oil burner only as backup. Unfortunately, this leaves some cold corners in the house, including our kid's room.
