A home energy audit is a series of tests used to determine your home’s energy use.
Our residential assessment will show you how your home’s unique energy use will affect your family’s comfort level and how much money could be saved by implementing energy efficiency upgrades.
How Does Energy Efficiency Impact Your Family?
When your home is increasingly energy-efficient, it warms and cools your family using less energy and money.
The average US residence typically spends $2,000 annually on energy bills. Given current trends, it is likely that residential energy costs will continue to rise. for the foreseeable future.
When products such as insulation become old and inefficient, your family pays more for energy that escapes your home.
Wasted home energy has a direct, negative impact on:
- the health and comfort of your family
- your pocketbook
- and the environment
For a modest upfront fee, your family can save money in the long run and help the environment, all while keeping you more comfortable.
How Home Energy Audits Save Energy
Your home’s energy efficiency is accomplished with materials and techniques such as air sealing, weatherization, insulation, energy-efficient windows, and blower door tests.
Strategies like insulation and weatherization can eliminate air leaks that cause drafts, prevent unevenly heated homes, and help you save on natural gas and electric bills.
Weatherization can also help maintain indoor air quality and defend against household pollutants like mildew, mold, and air pollution.
In addition, many utility companies offer free money incentives and rebates to homeowners looking to increase their home performance.
Ask your technician how these funds may be available for you.
What to Expect During A Home Energy Assessment
During the home energy audit, our technicians will determine:
- how much energy your home is consuming
