Home Energy Audits: Affordable, Cost-Effective, Fabulous!

OK, so “fabulous” isn’t the word that comes to mind when you’re talking about conservation and home energy audits!

But what’s more fabulous than walking around your own fabulous house, looking for ways to cut energy waste and to make it more energy-efficient?

Do It Yourself!

The City of Seattle’s downloadable brochure, Do It Yourself Home Energy Audit – A Step-by-Step Guide for Identifying and Improving Your Home’s Energy Efficiency, delivers what it promises. You don’t need any fancy equipment, and the savings can be significant.

Professional Energy Audits

Seattle City Light is sponsoring a program where, for $95, an auditor certified by the Building Performance Institute will visit your home and conduct a thorough assessment for you.

Energy Performance Scores

Seattle Public Utilities has a program called the Home Resource Profile where customers can fill out a 20-minute survey that will result in a report with easy-to-read charts and graphs showing your billing history, how your usage of water and electricity compares with the average Seattle household, and tips on how to reduce your energy bills.

Here’s to energy savings!
