Energy Efficiency For All
Home Energy Audit
The Home Energy Saver™ available through the U.S. Department of Energy helps homeowners make energy-saving upgrades. HES recommends upgrades that are appropriate to the home and make sense for the climate and local energy prices. By investing in the recommended upgrades, homeowners can save money on their energy bill and help the earth by reducing energy usage. Learn more.
ENERGY STAR is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy helping us all save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices.
Results are already adding up. Americans, with the help of ENERGY STAR, saved enough energy in 2010 alone to avoid greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from 33 million cars — all while saving nearly $18 billion on their utility bills. Visit energystar.gov
