What is a Home Energy Audit? Does not sound fun, right? It’s really just a guy (usually it’s a guy – women don’t seem to enter this field very frequently) who is
specifically trained and certified to be a residential energy auditor — which means he probably knows more than you do about the mechanics of your house. He will come to your home for 1 1/2 -3 hours, depending on the type of audit you request, and he’ll have some cool equipment like a big huge fan for the blower door test and infrared camera. Second, it’s easy: all you have to do is pick up the phone and schedule it; and most utility companies make it pretty inexpensive.
