What is an energy audit checklist?

An energy audit checklist is a tool used by energy auditors to guide them through the energy audit process. It typically includes a list of items to be inspected, tested, or evaluated during the audit, as well as a list of information to be collected, such as energy bills, maintenance records, and occupancy data.

An energy audit checklist may vary depending on the type and scope of the audit, but some common items on the checklist may include:

  • Building envelope: windows, doors, insulation, roof, walls, and foundation
  • Lighting: type of lamps and fixtures, lighting controls, occupancy sensors, and daylighting strategies
  • HVAC systems: heating and cooling equipment, air distribution systems, controls, and maintenance practices
  • Electrical systems: motors, variable frequency drives, transformers, and power factor correction
  • Water heating systems: type of equipment, controls, and insulation
  • Appliances and equipment: computers, copiers, refrigerators, and other equipment that consume energy
  • Building operations: occupancy patterns, maintenance practices, and other operational factors that impact energy use

An energy audit checklist can help ensure that all relevant information is collected during the audit and that potential energy-saving opportunities are not overlooked.
