It’s summer time. That means longer days, more playing, and less time staying inside. It also means a longer list of honey-do projects around your home.
Maybe it’s time to focus on one of the best projects you can do for your home - an energy audit.
An energy audit is performed by a professional HVAC technician. He will do a series of tests to determine where energy is lost throughout your home’s infrastructure or through the HVAC system when the heating and cooling systems are running. They check for a variety of things, including:
- Air leaks around doors and windows
- A lack of insulation in the walls, attic, and crawlspace
- A lack of insulation in the ductwork
- Duct leaks
- Faulty heating and cooling equipment
- Indoor air quality concerns
- Safety issues from the heating equipment
With the energy audit complete, the technician will make recommendations on how to improve your home. He will provide energy savings tips and strategies to help you save money on your heating and cooling needs.
Recommendations can be as simple as sealing leaks with caulk. Of course, in some cases, your best course of action may be to replace your HVAC system. We understand you have a budget to live within. We can help you create a plan with the most important things to do today, with a timeline of ideas you can perform over time to improve on it every system.
It’s not just more efficient heating and cooling; it can help make your air cleaner and provide you a more comfortable, healthier place to live too.
All it takes is a phone call to start the process now. Let’s see what an energy audit says about your home.
