Kickstart home energy savings

Ready to make your home more energy efficient and save money on your bill? Like every good journey, you’ll need a map to guide you. That’s exactly what a home energy audit does. DMEA offers free walk-through audits for members. Our energy experts will evaluate your home with efficiency and savings in mind and provide you with the steps you can take to start saving energy.

Your DMEA energy audit may include the following:
  • Infrared camera – Identifies spots in your home where you could be wasting energy due to air leaks.
  • Walk through evaluation – Identifies the low and no-cost steps you can take to start shaving those kilowatt hours off your bill.

Home energy monitors

Home energy monitors, also called Kill-A-Watt meters, are available to DMEA members for check out through the public libraries within the co-op’s service territory. The devices can be checked out like other library materials. They plug into 110-volt home appliances and other electronics and help you determine how much energy an appliance is using and the resulting cost.

The Kill-A-Watt meter displays consumption by the kilowatt-hour, as well as voltage (V), line current (Hz), current (I) and more. The meters are available for checkout at the following libraries:
