HOMEOWNER Q&A > Home Energy Assessment or Home Energy Audit
The abbreviated home energy assessment is valuable but does not include the diagnostics of a comprehensive energy audit, which we recommend for homeowners who are looking for a more precise analysis, troubleshooting problems or preparing for larger home improvements. The comprehensive energy audit service is also discounted and eligible for AEP/APCO take Charge VA Home Performance Program incentives.
