Home Energy Audits

Back to the Appliance Repair resource page.

Energy audit can be conducted by professionals. But, you are also capable of conducting a useful energy audit. Below are areas that are important for you to check.

Air Leaks

To begin with, walk through your house looking for obvious drafts and their sources. Simply eliminating drafts can save 5% to 30% per year. Next, perform the following checks.


Heat loss through the ceiling and walls in homes can be a major cause of inflated energy costs. The Federal Government recomends a minimum amount of insulation. You should check to see if your home meets these reccomendations. If your home is old, it is very likely that the original insulation no longer meets the Federal reccomendations (see http://www.ornl.gov/sci/roofs+walls/insulation/ins_16.html for these reccomendations and more helpful information).

Heating and Cooling


On average, lighting costs will comprise about 10% of your electric costs (see below for more information).

Below is the national average for how power is used in America.
