Do-It-Yourself Energy Audit

Now that the weather is starting to change, it’s the perfect time to do your own energy audit and get your home ready for winter.  As much as one-third of the energy you use to heat your home may be slipping through windows, doors, electrical outlets, and other cracks.  Check out one of the Minitemp Noncontact Thermometers that use infrared technology to measure the surface temperature in areas of your home.  Just “point and shoot” at the exterior of your home and you can literally see where the heat is leaking out of your home! The Minitemp Noncontact Thermometers are kept at the Reference Desk and can be checked out for one week.
