I was interested in having an energy audit performed on our house. Here in Iowa, Mid-American Energy will provide an energy audit for free if your house was built before 2000, which we do not qualify for, so I was debating paying for one.
Called one company and through a three hour process, they will come in and hook a vacuum up to your house and via thermo imaging can tell you where you have air leaks, but he quoted almost $500 for it. Our utility bills for our 2500SF house usually run between $150 and $250 depending on the time of year
I just wanted to see if anyone has had experience with an energy audit, if you thought it was worth the money, and if you actually saved money as a result of the audit.
Thanks in advance,
