Save Time Save Energy - Home Energy Audit

A do-it-yourself online home energy audit that provides local information? I tried it myself and found it somewhat lacking. The questions around my appliance selections and improvements already completed were not sufficiently in depth to give me a true calculation of energy savings, but it does provide a lot of great ideas for those who have not made any energy saving upgrades in the past few years. Do your own online
energy saving audit here.
Or check out renovateyourworld.com's article on home energy audits for the the do-it-yourselfer and then pick up some tips on making your home more energy efficient here.
What have you done to increase your home's efficiency? Let us know in the comments section below.
