Saving Energy in Your Home
How, when, and in what form we use energy can have a dramatic effect on our lives, our bank accounts, and the environment. The average Minnesota family spends a significant amount of money on energy, but the U.S. Department of Energy calculates that we can reduce costs by 30% by making simple energy improvements to our homes. Why make the changes?
In the energy world, the starting point fitness test is called a home energy assessment or audit. The energy audit examines the energy efficiency of your house before any changes are made. It can help you decide what needs fixing, what needs upgrading, and what needs replacement.
Once you have had an energy assessor come to your home and provide you with new information about its efficiency, you may decide to hire a contractor to perform improvements.
