The new year brings renewed resolutions to improve things such as our health, finances and professional status. It’s also a great time to make improvements to what is likely our largest investment: our homes.

Regular maintenance will keep your house in tiptop shape and help prevent costly breakdowns, putting more money in your pocket. Here are some home- improvement projects you shouldn’t put off in 2011.

Complete a home energy audit

An audit can help assess how much energy your home uses and evaluate measures you can take to improve efficiency. Auditors typically use high-tech equipment such as blower doors, infrared cameras and surface thermometers to find leaks and drafts.

“It’s going to cut down on your energy bills,” said Mark Dreher, a certified energy rater with Thermo-Scan Inspections in Carmel. “The biggest benefit you’ll get is probably comfort.”

You can conduct an audit yourself by checking the insulation levels in your attic, exterior and basement walls, ceilings, floors and crawl spaces. Adding insulation to your home is one of the lowest-cost options for improving energy efficiency.
