    I was curious how many people start a major home renovation by first having an energy audit performed by the local utility or specialty house inspection company?
    We did not, and wish we would have. We have learned so much from our energy audit, both the different products available (such as drain water heat recovery device and tankless water heaters) as well as the little things ( such as timers for the bathroom fans and weather stripping the door to the cold cellar)
    In case anyone would like to see an actual home energy audit report, we have posted 15 articles (see how much we like our energy audit? 🙂 ) on our blog, Daily Home Renovation Tips, http://DailyHomeRenoTips.com/ecoenergy/ where you can see various portions of the energy audit report including the graphs, EnerGuide rating, recommendations and the like.
    I would be interested to know other’s experience with home energy audits.
