About This e-Book

This e-book is a companion to your Home Energy Report your home inspector provided you.

The book can show you how easy it is to reduce your energy use at home, including tips you can use today. There are easy, practical solutions for saving energy throughout your home—from the roof, walls, and insulation that enclose it, to the appliances and lights inside. Please take a few moments to read the valuable tips to start saving energy and money today.

Right in your own home, you have the power to reduce energy demand, and when you reduce demand, you cut the amount of natural resources, such as coal and gas, that are needed to make energy. That means you can create less greenhouse gas emissions, which keeps air cleaner for all of us… and saves on your utility bills! Plus, reducing energy use increases our energy security.
