ENERGY AUDITORS survey and inspect energy systems in commercial and residential buildings. They do walk-thru and investment grade (detailed) audits, write reports, and make recommendations about the best type of energy to use for heating and cooling. Energy auditors work with engineers to compare various forms of energy, such as gas, electric, solar, and oil, and compare the most efficient energy saving methods.
