EcoIL asks:

Hey all, been lurking and reading for a couple of months, decided to join this great group.

Anyone do a home energy audit with the blower door test and infrared scan? In my area its $300 for both and for $50 the will come back and retest after you do improvements. My house is a ranch built in 1996.

Wondering if it's worth it or should I spend the money on additional insulation in the ceiling, and diy spray foam of the sill plate cavity's in the basement (really leaky , stuffed it full of insulation last winter).
