There is wasted energy in every Tennessean’s home, and the Tennessee Valley Authority is offering a free online audit to help its customers find and reduce those wasted kilowatts.
Customers who complete the online audit or schedule an in-home audit with a TVA-certified evaluator will receive an energy conservation kit, which includes two compact fluorescent light bulbs, two faucet aerators and a hot water temperature gauge.
The online audit will ask customers to describe their house including the number of rooms, levels, and types of heating and cooling systems installed.
To start a free online audit, visit the TVA website at www.energyright.com. This site also provides customer resources like an energy calculator to compute a home’s actual energy use and cost, and simple things homeowners can do to reduce energy waste.
