SHOW Energy Audit Checklist
Oregon households that heat with oil, wood, propane, kerosene or butane are eligible for the State Home Oil Weatherization (SHOW) Program administered by the Oregon Department of Energy.
Doing your own Energy Audit Checklist

Owners of SHOW-eligible homes (those that heat with oil, wood, propane, kerosene or butane) can complete an Energy Audit Checklist or ask a contractor to assist.
The Energy Audit Checklist surveys what currently exists in the home and makes recommendations depending upon what is checked. For example, if attic insulation is R-19 or less (the amount of resistance to heat loss in insulation is measured in R-value per inch), it is recommended that homeowners insulate to R-38 where possible. How do you tell how much "R-value" your attic, walls and floors have? The Insulation Fact Sheet should help you to determine these values.
Once your audit is complete, decide what recommended measures you will install. You can install the measures yourself or hire a licensed contractor to do the work. The Department of Energy does not endorse any contractor or assume written or implied warranty on any work performed. The contractor should provide you with a written, itemized receipt of the work clearly marked that it has been paid in full. The contractor should also sign the Energy Rebate form when the work is completed.
If you do the installation work yourself, you should include the receipts (or copies of the receipts) for the cost of the material and supplies only for the rebates. Labor will not be included if you do the work yourself.
