To make your home more comfortable and efficient, an energy audit is the most comprehensive way to understand your home’s energy use, locate trouble spots, and determine which improvements will help you use less energy and save money. Here are a few questions to consider:

  • Are you paying more to heat and cool your home than you need to?
  • Is your home drafty in the winter or hot and stuffy in the summer?
  • Do you have ice dams on your eaves, frost on your windows or mold in your basement?
  • Are you committed to using less fossil fuel to help fight climate change?

If you've answered "YES" to any of these questions, an energy audit from the Energy Co-op of Vermont is a great place to look for answers. We offer low-cost audits and our in-house weatherization team can complete improvements that are right for you at a reasonable price.

  • Committed to Reducing Fossil Fuel Footprint

    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.
