It takes a lot of energy to heat, cool, and operate a home. Most home buyers have no idea how much it will cost them to operate their home once they move in. Current homeowners do not fully understand how much energy and, therefore, money is being wasted by their home. And if they did understand, neither home buyers nor homeowners would know what to do about it.
- how much the home will cost to operate (once they move in);
- where energy (and, therefore, money) is being wasted in the home; and
- what can be done to save energy and increase comfort after they move in.
