Home Energy Audits

Information from the SOCAN’s Talent Climate Action Team

You can save money and be gentler on the climate, without too much effort. We recommend starting with a do-it-yourself energy audit. See https://www.energy.gov/energysaver/do-it-yourself-home-energy-assessments for more details.
  • Check energy bills – your starting point
  • Check heating and cooling – gas? electric?, thermostat type?
  • Check light bulbs – how many, incandescent? CFL? LED?, wattage? (Note: all bulbs but LEDs are being phased out.)
  • Check water heater – gas? electric?  tank size?
  • Check stove & oven – gas? electric?
