Home Energy Audits
Just how much energy does your home consume? Answering that question is your first step toward reducing your carbon footprint. There are several ways to find out if your home is an energy glutton. It's important to know where the savings opportunities are before you invest in home improvements.
Taking the Hawaiian Electric Company's interactive survey is a great way to get started on the path to a more energy-efficient home.
Next, consider a home energy audit to gauge how much energy your home consumes and help you identify practical ways to make it more energy efficient.
An audit will:
- Pinpoint where your house is losing energy
- Flag problems that, when corrected, can save you money over time
- Suggest ways to conserve hot water and electricity
- Point to ways to cool your home more efficiently.
