Home Energy Audits Door Blower Test

The East Grand Forks Water and Light now offers Subsidized Home Energy Audits to those interested in identifying what measures may be taken to make their home more energy efficient. The audit will show the home owner problems that may, when corrected, save you, the customer, significant amounts of money over time.

To see what an auditor will do during an audit, watch this video from the U.S. Department of Energy and it will show you what you can expect if you have an auditor come to your home.
