Seattle City Light offers home energy audits for $95 to City Light customers living in single family homes. Independent auditors certified by the Building Performance Institute
will visit your home and conduct a thorough assessment of its insulation level, leakiness, and heating system efficiency. Your auditor will also install free energy-saving compact fluorescent light bulbs.
After your audit is complete, you'll receive an "Energy Performance Scorecard" report that rates the current efficiency level of your home - similar to an mpg rating of your car. Your report will also provide suggested energy-efficiency upgrades, their estimated costs and available rebates, and the potential for energy and climate impact reduction.
