Energy Audit To-Do List

Just had the city out to do an energy audit on the house, and here's my to-do list:
  • Tape loose joints in the return air ducting in the basement
  • Doorsweep on basement stairs door
  • Buy foamboard to insulate both attic hatches and both attic fans
  • Fill gaps at sides of fireplace
  • Insulate outlet covers on outside walls
  • Drywall the ceiling in the basement stairwell
  • 3-4 inches of blown insulation in both attics
That's, of course, not including the getting of estimates for the replacement of our heating and A/C with more efficient units, which was what started this whole process. Although after running the numbers, I seriously doubt it will make financial sense to replace the system until something breaks.
