When winter finally ends up coming to a close, many homeowners in Southeastern,PA begin to breathe a sigh of relief. It’s often assumed that spring means you don’t need to worry about your home’s efficiency issues anymore (since the weather is mild), but this is a common misconception.Issues with the home don’t just disappear with the sudden onset of warmer weather, and they’re only going to cause more headaches down the road when the temperatures once again begin to turn. Spring is an ideal season for addressing these all-too-common issues and putting them to rest for good, ensuring a cool and comfortable summer for you and your family.

Assessing Home Efficiency Issues

The first step toward improving energy efficiency and comfort in any home is to take a closer look at whatever issues are at play. Take, for example, a lack of insulation and air sealing. When the home is properly insulated/air-sealed, drafts disappear, energy bills are kept low and overall indoor comfort levels soar. The exact opposite can be expected in homes that aren’t well-insulated or are characterized by tiny cracks and gaps that allow air to flow in and out of the home. Recognizing that problems such as this exist is the first step toward fixing them once and for all.

It all starts with a home energy audit, which is the first line of defense against issues that commonly plague homes throughout PA. Once we’ve conducted our energy audit, the team at Green Stone Energy will develop a comprehensive report and make recommendations to help you get the most out of home performance, indoor comfort and energy efficiency.

Fixing Existing Issues

While no one wants to hear that there are issues existing within their home that will only get worse with time if left unaddressed, this is not uncommon for homeowners who have just recently decided to take a closer look at home performance and energy efficiency. Fixing existing issues the moment they’re discovered will always result in a healthier, more functional home and can even save you money in many cases. For example, you may think that you need a new HVAC system because your current equipment isn’t performing up to par, but what if all you really need is a boost in insulation and air sealing? Improving efficiency is the key to avoiding costly repairs, and it all starts with a home energy audit.
