Home Energy Audits

Energy audits are available to the members at no cost. We can come out and identify different areas of your home that may be costing you dollars from heat/cold infiltration and suggest ways that you can improve the energy efficiency of your home through insulation, caulking, or weatherstripping.

With an infrared camera, we can take pictures of your home and identify areas where heat is escaping. With a blower door testing system we can find leaks in your building envelope so that you can work to fill those leaks and make your home tighter and more energy efficient.
