St. Louis (KSDK) - A home energy audit can save you thousands of dollars on your electric bills.
Kellye Markowski of Energy Smart Homes says the goal is to point out the most effective and cost-saving ways to improve your home and keep it cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
Kirkwood homeowner John Robinson had an audit nearly three years ago. With what he learned and the improvements he's made, Robinson says he's now saving 20 to 30 percent on his energy bills.
An energy audit can cost around $400, but Ameren Missouri is giving you a chance to win a free energy audit.
