If you are concerned with how your home uses energy or want a detailed map of where your home may be losing energy, an energy audit can help. Energy audits are comprehensive looks at your home, energy usage, and any potential areas where energy loss may be occurring, such as ducts, fireplaces, doors, and windows. An energy audit is a great first step to improving the efficiency of your home because it can help you make the best, most strategic steps toward efficiency.
Some companies roll the cost of an energy audit into the work you may choose to do later, while others have set prices regardless of future work. In most instances, labor for an energy audit makes up the bulk of the cost, with most ranging from $0.08 to $0.12 a square foot.
