Energy Auditing Video!
So, I found this video over on the Make Magazine blog (read the original article on Energy Audits) , and it is pretty cool. Did you know that you probably already pay for the utility companies to come and perform an energy audit of your home? That's right, a small portion of the bills you already pay every month is set aside for you to have an energy audit. Look at your bill and ask for an energy audit. They will put this blower over your door that will suck air out of the home. Then you can go around and feel where the drafty areas are.
FYI, energysavers.gov has information about DIY audits!
The first step to being more efficient is knowing where energy is wasted!
Here is another video I found... which is actually a BASF advertisement... but still.
