A home energy assessment is a smart investment for every homeowner, whether your home is old, drafty and lacking insulation or you’re simply curious.
Hire a certified professional to use thermal imaging, airflow analysis, insulation inspections and appliance testing to audit your home. You’ll get a full report of the results. By making the changes suggested by your home energy assessment, you can easily recoup your initial investment and continue to save money every month, especially in seasons with extreme temperatures.
How it Works
A certified home energy auditor visits your home with a range of testing equipment. They assess the home, then they examine each aspect of its energy efficiency, from exterior-facing wall insulation quality to HVAC function.
You don’t have to lift a finger — your home energy assessment is done in about three hours.
Where Are You Losing Energy?
If your home was built before 2000, you could be paying between 25 and 40 percent more than you should for your annual energy bills. With the rising price of oil, gas and electricity, now is the time to find out where you’re losing energy with a home energy assessment.
Resolve Duct Problems
Part of an efficient HVAC system is properly designed and installed ductwork. During the inspection, your auditor will check for leaks and damage to the ductwork, ensuring the system isn’t losing hot or cold air in crawlspaces or any other areas.
Homes built before 1970 don’t even have wall insulation! The inspection will reveal which walls need extra insulation or if you’re losing too much heat through your roof.
Prevent Structural Problems
Mold and mildew can form as a result of inefficient airflow and spiking humidity. If this goes unchecked, it can seriously threaten the structural integrity of your home. Prevent a costly mold removal bill and an expensive structural repair — catch mold growth before it spreads.
Identify Health Hazards
Mold is dangerous for your home, but it’s also dangerous for you. Inhaling mold spores can contribute to a range of health problems. An audit can catch this health hazard, and save you money on doctor bills as well.
Enhance Home Value
You want to sell your home, but you know a prospective buyer will ask about your energy bills … and they’re awfully high. You will drastically increase buyer interest with every dollar you can shave off your utility bills. Enhance your home value by making much-needed, energy-efficient improvements.
Recoup the Cost Over Time
It’s possible to find local and federal rebates to help pay for the home energy assessment and any associated repairs. You will quickly regain your investment in the form of much lower monthly energy bills. Contact Energy Savers today to schedule your audit!
