The audit involves a visual inspection of the residence, a series of diagnostic tests, and a numerical analysis by means of a software package. Auditors inspect, measure, and test to decide what energy-saving retrofits are practical and cost-effective. An energy audit is also called a home energy analysis, a home performance analysis or an energy survey.
