These pages have been prepared to assist you in identifying the areas of your home that are wasting or using too much energy, as well as offer some simple steps to reduce your energy consumption.

First, follow our self Home Energy Audit checklist as you conduct a simple walk- through in your home. This will help pinpoint where you are losing energy.

Next, take some tips from our list of Simple Steps to help cut your energy usage…some are surprising, but most are surprisingly simple!

We hope the information that your find in this brochure will save you from needlessly wasting money as you heat, cool and light your home.
