“The person who did my assessment explained everything and the workers who insulated my attic didn’t leave a mess and were really helpful. I’ve already told my neighbors and kids about it.
I said, ‘I had it done and was very impressed and you will be, too! Go for it!’”

“Having an energy assessment gave me the motivation I needed to get my attic insulated and some air leaks sealed. My follow-up assessment showed an 18 percent improvement! My neighbors are anxious to talk to me about it. It’s an idea that’s catching on!”

Energy assessments, sometimes referred to as energy audits or energy checkups, are the best way to determine exactly how energy is used in your home. As part of the assessment, your energy expert will show you where your home is losing energy, determine the efficiency of the structure’s heating and cooling system, and more. The analyst will use blower-door tests, infrared cameras and other equipment to conduct the assessment in order to identify issues in hard-to-detect areas. Then he or she will map out a strategy for improving energy efficiency in your home.


Before the energy expert visits your house for the assessment, make a list of the energy concerns you’re currently having, such as drafty rooms or condensation issues. Also have copies of your utility bills handy. The analyst will use them to determine what to look for during the assessment.


What to Expect


Upon arrival, your energy expert will examine the outside of your home, calculating its size and outlining its features. He or she will ask about the types of activities and behaviors happening in the house.


Sample questions might include:
