What’s The Difference Between A Free Energy Audit or Audit Done By an Air Conditioning Company And A Paid Energy Audit?
Have you had an offer to have a free home energy audit or assessment done on your home? This can seem like a logical thing to do because it’s sponsored by the utility company, there are often rebates available and there are many benefits to energy efficiency work, however, we suggest that buyers beware of these offers for several reasons. To take a step back, it is important to clarify that neither utility company APS or SRP offer a free energy assessment and companies may be curtailing off the utilities’ energy efficiency program. You can call APS and SRP directly or visit their website for an approved contractor list.
APS and SRP rebates are only available to file through approved contractors, and homeowners must sign an APS and SRP audit form during the initial energy audit (the true way to tell if you are having a certified APS and SRP energy audit done).
If a single company is offering both a free energy audit and a paid energy audit, a red flag should go up in your mind as a company you do not want in your home. Here is a chart comparison of free energy audits and a utility sponsored paid audit.

Wow, I didn't know that there are many benefits to getting an energy audit. I suppose I should get the services of an in-home energy assessment company because I might get entitled to rebates. Since there is quality assurance in paid energy audits, it would be wise for me to get this from a paid service so I can be sure that my energy readings are accurate.
