In person, free home energy audits are also conducted for residential members and commercial audits are performed for member-businesses who wish to know more about their energy consumption. Representatives are trained to survey facilities and make recommendations to help keep energy costs down.

While the typical home offers many opportunities for saving money without sacrificing comfort, sometimes finding them can be tricky, or just overlooked. The goal of this information is to help you gain greater control over your energy consumption. Energy needs in Florida vary according to the seasons. However, the major areas for possible savings are: home insulation, heating and cooling, lighting, cooking, water heating, refrigeration, laundering and pumping water or running special equipment.
