Great Review of Do It Yourself Home Energy Audits by Sustainablog!
Here is a sample of the story:
Watching the utility bills climb this summer? Ready to take control of your energy use? A home energy audit is a good first step towards figuring out how you use energy in your home, and prioritizing where you can start saving. Some utility companies offer auditing services; there are also private contractors that will do this for you (and you may be able to write their fees off on your taxes).
You don’t necessarily need to bring in a professional to conduct an audit, though… with a little knowledge and planning, you can do it yourself. David S. Findley’s Do-It-Yourself Home Energy Audits (affiliate link) aims to provide that knowledge, and help with the planning. A volume in McGraw-Hill’s “Green Guru Guides” series, Findley’s book walks you through the process of auditing your energy (and water) use, and helps you determine what steps you can take immediately, which ones might require some additional thought and planning, and when it’s time to call in a contractor.
