  1. DC Home Performance with ENERGY STAR participating contractors will guide you through the process of improving the energy efficiency of your home and identifying financial incentives.
  2. A whole-house energy audit focuses on ways to make your home comfortable, energy efficient, and healthy. A comprehensive audit includes checking for air leaks, examining insulation, inspecting heating and cooling equipment and ductwork, and performing a blower door test.
  3. All homes are different and need to be evaluated individually. It takes a home energy professional to evaluate your home and your family’s specific needs.
