Survey: Home Energy Audits
How many U.S. homes would benefit from an energy audit?
"In truth, most of America’s aging housing stock certainly could (not to mention the swaths of poorly constructed houses built during the recent cookie-cutter development boom)," according to this report in GOOD magazine. Steep growth in home energy certifications suggests that growing numbers of contractors see the potential in this market, though these numbers still represent a small percentage of the remodeling industry overall.
In today's d5R interactive, share where your company stands on home energy audits and retrofits. (Survey may take several seconds to open.)

We purchased an infared camera and have done a few energy audits but have found that we can't make any money at it. So we stopped short of investing in a blower door. I'm not sorry that we have the infared camera because it's useful for many things, such as locating radiant heat tubing in concrete floors
I clicked 11-25% for 2010 revenues from energy retrofits onbly because it was the lowest choice. In reality it was less than 5% of our revenue
