The City of Tallahassee has an incredible program that can add value to your home.
An energy audit is one of the best ways to identify energy problems as well as opportunities save energy, water and money. It can help you prioritize and focus your efforts. For some of the City’s e+ programs, such as ceiling insulation, solar loans, and solar rebates, an audit is a necessary first step.
Here’s how it works: An energy auditor from Your Own Utilities will come to your home or business at a convenient time to examine the structure as well as energy and water systems. The auditor will check recent and past energy and water consumption records and inspect everything that affects your home energy and water usage:
- water heaters,
- thermostat settings,
- showerheads and more.
The auditors will review their findings with you, diagnoses problems that may cause high operating costs and make recommendations for energy and water saving improvements. Typically, depending on the size of the premise, the audit will last from 45 minutes to 3 hours.
