What is an Energy Audit?

A home energy audit is exactly what its name suggests. It refers to a comprehensive assessment of your home; everything from insulation to air sealing, windows, appliances, heating system and other factors affecting energy usage. The goal of an energy audit is to understand and diminish the amount of energy used in your home.

In simple words, it is a process that allows you to recognize where your house is utilizing excess energy and what you can do to improve its efficiency. Every homeowner should consider getting a home energy audit done every two or three years to ensure their home is operating at maximum efficiency. The best part about a home energy audit is that it not only informs you about energy deficiencies inside your home but also provides solutions for mitigating them. After the Mass Save® assessment is complete, you will have several solutions at your disposal for resolving energy issues.
