Home Energy Audits
The first step towards an energy-efficient home is to conduct an energy audit to find out where your home    is losing energy. They range around $500 depending on the size of your home. An audit performed by a Certified Rater can include many different tests. A report is generated with recommendations. Verification of improvements developed from the report can be a major selling point. Remember to check with your local utility to see if they offer free or discounted energy audits for their customers.
