Home Energy Audits

Energy Audit Results

Howard County received a grant from the U.S. Depart­ment of Energy that funded 900 local home energy audits. The data from these audits have been ana­lyzed so that other peo­ple can use the infor­ma­tion. By using the map and inter­ac­tive graph, you can get energy effi­ciency rec­om­men­da­tions for your type of house based on audits done on homes like yours in Howard County.

The Map shows where in the county homes tend to use more or less energy. The map can dis­play data for homes built within cer­tain time frames or the com­bined data of all homes..

The Inter­ac­tive Graph allows you to select 4 char­ac­ter­is­tics of your home which are then used to dis­play both the typ­i­cal energy usage for a home like yours and rec­om­men­da­tions on how house­holds sim­i­lar to yours may be able to save money and energy. User tip: If you choose a com­bi­na­tion that is not in the data­base and get a mes­sage to try again, please refresh the page to start over.
