For those who are looking to improve energy efficiency, there are a number of different routes to take. Moving in the right direction, however, requires you to know what you’re dealing with before taking action. This is where an energy audit comes in, and it’s one of the most important things you can do to enhance home performance.
Is Your Home's Efficiency Up to Par?
A home energy audit is like a trip to the mechanic, except it’s your home that’s being focused on rather than your vehicle. Your home is made up of a number of different complex systems that work together to promote comfort and energy efficiency when all is going well. When issues occur in one area of the home, however, they tend to extend to others and create lasting home performance problems that must be addressed in order to be fixed. An energy audit gives us the information we need to understand what’s going on within the home so that we can make the changes necessary for getting your home back on track.
What to Expect from a Home Energy Audit
There are a number of different things to expect from a home energy audit. Through a series of state-of-the-art tests, we’ll evaluate your home for any issues that may be contributing to a lack of home performance. These tests will provide us with information about air quality issues, safety concerns, appliance inefficiency, insulation problems and issues relating to air sealing.
We take a “whole home” approach, which allows us to get a greater sense of how the home works as a system and provides a baseline for how to move forward to enhance energy & efficiency.
The benefits of conducting a home energy audit include:
● Increased Home Comfort
● Improved Indoor Air Quality
● Reduced Energy Bills
● A More Comfortable Home Environment
● Peace of Mind
