EARTH FRIENDLY FRIDAY - DIY Home Energy Audit

We can all use a little help to go a little greener. And, why not save a little money along the way? Here's a website that will help you give your house an energy audit. Plus, if you can find ways to save energy and money, you might end up being a little more comfortable in your green home. So, if you're interested, check it out here. This is a Seattle power brochure but you might have one you can access in your area too. I'd definitely check it out but, if not, this will give you a good start.

My husband and I had our local electric company come out and give us a home audit. We found some ways to save energy and hopefully a little money too. With some inexpensive fixes, our house stayed warmer in the winter - and hopefully it will be much cooler in the summer too.

Our house was built in 1890 so we can use all the energy tips and advice we can get.

This is such a great thing--many electric companies provide these services for free. I've been encouraging my MIL to do this...

Wow, 1890? That must be a challenge! I'll bet it's lovely, though.

I will definitely do the DIY audit! Thanks, Kim!
