Energy Audit Example 2

A Sample Energy Auditing for Electrical Appliances of a Residential Home


Date of Energy Audit: October 6, 2010
(* Note: This is ony for eectrica a!!iances, energy ea"age is not incuded#$
1. Introduction
Energy auditing is a !rocess for accessing energy usage by indi%idua energy consu&ing
de%ices on a residentia or co&&ercia scae# After the energy audit is co&!eted, a diagra&
can be created 'hich defines the energy consu&!tion by indi%idua energy consu&ing
de%ices, e#g# refrigerator, 'asher, dryer, tee%ision, heating syste&, hot 'ater heater, etc# An
energy sa%ings !an foo's the energy auditing !rocess# (t focuses on low hanging fruits first,
e#g# instaation of high efficiency ight bubs, high efficiency a!!iances, etc# (nsuating the
buiding and changing 'indo's)doors is usuay %ery costy*high hanging fruits. They are
addressed as secondary &easures due to a onger !aybac" ti&e#
