Home Energy Audit
We have an all electric geothermal home which is supposed to be pretty energy efficient, but our attic insulation levels are really bad (had several people tell me this) as well as our windows/doors are really old so I'm thinking before the snow flies I should have an audit done to see how energy efficient we really are.
Has anyone actually done this with their home? What were the recommendations. Did you do any of them and if so do you think it was worth the investment?
Based on the way our house was built/duct work installed we have 3 geothermal units and our electric bill in summer/winter averages about $600-700 a month. We only have gas for our stove and my DH's hot tub so it's fairly nominal. Our hot water tanks etc. are electric but the initial water is heated off the geothermal then goes through the normal hot water heater so that too is supposedly energy efficient.
My monthly electric bill still seems like a lot to me so hoping that weather proofing my house will help lower these costs. Your thoughts and experiences would be most helpful!
