Do you know how much energy you use in your home on a daily basis? Are you curious as to where it’s being used the most or where it’s being wasted? Getting a whole-home energy audit is the first step in understanding your home’s energy usage and what you can do to improve it.
What Happens in a Whole Home Energy Audit
In a standard home energy audit, a technician will inspect various components of your home, such as windows, lights, air conditioners, sinks, electrical components and walls, to assess your home’s energy usage and spot any major problems that could be costing you. They will check for leaks and issues that may be causing your electricity bill to rise and will suggest solutions to your problems.
The auditor will also check your attic and your furnace for any major problems that may show themselves, making sure that your insulation is properly functioning, inspecting for possible holes present in your walls and checking the age of your equipment and machinery for possible upgrades and replacement.
Increase Your Comfort
By scheduling a whole-home energy audit, you are ensuring your own basic comfort and needs. Inspecting the whole house can point out multiple problem spots. By fixing them as soon as they arise instead of avoiding the issue, you can save yourself money and unnecessary discomfort.
Save More Money
High energy bills are a common problem amongst many homeowners. But with an energy audit, your energy savings will rise due to a decrease in consumption of natural resources. Not only will you be saving money in the long run, but you will be helping your environment, too. By having your home energy audited, you can even save up to 30 percent on your next energy bill. Energy conservation is a win-win situation where by taking care of yourself, you are simultaneously taking care of your surroundings.
