The city of Austin has recently passed the ordinance to require all home sellers to have an "energy audit" prior to selling the home. This ordinance will be required on all homes sold as of June 1st, 2009. They tried to start this back in January 2009, but at that point there were only five licensed auditors. So they set the date back to June 1st, so they had a chance to train more auditors.
There are a few homes that are exempt from this audit: 1. New homes constructed within the last ten years, 2. Homes that have had a recent Austin Energy Update participating with the Rebate program, 3. Homes that are changing ownership due to Foreclosure, divorce, death.
In the last few months several people have asked me "where do I find an auditor?" So I have compiled a list. This is a partial list and I am sure it will keep growing. I will do my best to update it periodically. I hope you find this information useful.
