Do-It-Yourself energy evaluation

Whether you live in a house or an apartment, there’s no doubt that wasted energy costs you money.

When you complete the do-it-yourself energy evaluation, TVA will send you a customized energy report to help you understand where your home is wasting energy – and how you can fix those expensive leaks. It addresses areas such as heating and cooling, lighting, water heating and electrical appliances. The tips are personalized based on your answers about your home and energy use.
