Space Heating Overview 
 
For Electric & Natural Gas Customers

Homes, whether they are older or recently built, may have lots of areas where you can save energy. A good way to determine energy saving opportunities is to have an energy audit, sometimes called an evaluation or assessment. An energy audit, conducted by a trained energy auditor, will detect which areas of your home use the most energy. The qualified auditor will look at the structure of your home, the insulation, the heating and cooling systems, appliances, windows and doors, and identify cold drafts entering your home.

The energy auditor also considers your habits and how you use energy. They will make suggestions on changes you can make or improvements that will assist you in lowering your energy usage to save money. The Department of Energy says you may save between 5% - 45% on your energy bill by making upgrades following a home energy assessment.
