Energy audits are a great step towards increasing energy efficiency in your home. The more energy-efficient your home is, the less money you spend on bills and the higher the value of your property. Moreover, energy audits are also a brilliant way to uncover health and safety hazards that you may have been unaware of. 

What is an Energy Audit?

The idea behind an energy audit is to conduct some tests to figure out inefficiencies within your home. These include:

  • The spaces in your home that are losing energy or contributing to energy wastage.

  • The systems in your house are not working properly.

  • Health and safety hazards that put your entire family at risk, such as carbon monoxide or inadequate electrical wiring. 

Home Insulation

An energy audit will ensure that your home is properly insulated. Here are some things it will look at:

  • Doors and Windows

If there is any condensation or air leak, the energy audit will be able to pick it up. It will point to poor sealing methods that have been used in your house. If this is the case, you are constantly losing heating and energy throughout the year. An energy audit will help you properly insulate your home, hence, save energy and electricity bills.

  • Electrical Outlets

Air can easily leak out of electrical outlets. If an electrical outlet is poorly installed, air will escape through the windows. 

This will cause an increase in your heating costs, forcing you to pay a higher bill each year.

  • Duct System

Did you know that leaks, holes, and poor connections are responsible for losing 20 percent of the air through the duct system? 

By installing proper insulation using a contractor, you can ensure that there are no air leaks in your home, hence conserve energy!
