Other Notes

This may be the first step toward weatherization. It is an activity recommended by the DOE to determine what weatherization/energy improvement strategies would be best suited for each home/structure. Your program is not required to exactly match the way that DOE provides energy audits but we encourage you to create programs that reflect “the spirit of” the DOE programs.
