Often cities require energy audits before they will grant someone renewable energy incentives. If the auditor finds inefficiencies in the building he will recommend weatherization or other energy efficiency solutions.
An energy audit is designed to find inefficiencies that lead to greater energy consumption. One of the first steps of an energy audit is to locate air leaks found around doors, windows, electrical outlets, attic hatches, and fireplace dampers. The energy audit will also include examining insulation, heating/cooling equipment, appliances, water heaters, and lighting.
