A home energy audit is the first step in making your home more efficient. An audit will assess how much energy your home uses and evaluate what measures you can take to improve efficiency. But remember, audits alone don't save energy. You need to implement the recommended improvements. Energy Audits Unlimited provides extensive information about home improvement projects to enhance energy efficiency, lower utility bills, and increase comfort.
