Getting a handle on your home's energy use is an important first step to improving efficiency. You can do a simple assessment yourself using our on-line tools, or have a professional energy auditor perform a more thorough audit. Then, use ENERGY STAR resources to get guidance on home improvement projects to enhance energy efficiency, lower utility bills, and increase comfort.

to compare your home's energy use to similar homes across the country and see how your home measures up. Then, use our Home Energy Advisor
to get recommendations for energy-saving home improvements for typical homes in your area.
