  • Do-It-Yourself Home Energy Audits- In this type, the people living in the home do it and keep a checklist of repairs or changes needed to increase home energy efficiency.
  • Walk-through audits-a brief review of the home or facilities bills and other operating data, and a walk-through of the home or business to become familiar with the building operation.
