Making Sense (and Cents) out of Home Energy Efficiency Projects

Identifying potential energy efficiency savings takes a little detective work. Because every home is different, the energy efficiency needs for your home are unique. Therefore, your first step is to identify the projects that are most needed for your home. To do this, you must start with an assessment. You can hire a professional home auditor or you can do the assessment with the help of online resources or our Home Energy Assessment DIY.

Once your assessment is complete and you have identified the projects that are most needed to make your home more energy efficient, you must prioritize these projects. There are a number of things to consider. It is important to determine how much you might save by making improvements as well as the initial cost.
