Normally when you hear people use the word audit they have a tone of worry or stress in their voice. Tax audits frequently cause stress for individuals and businesses. Today Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning wants to talk about a type of audit that will make you excited to have performed. We are talking about a home energy audit. Home energy audits are beneficial to homeowners for a large variety of reasons.
What is a Home Energy Audit
You may be asking yourself what a home energy audit even is. A very basic definition we found from the US Department of Energy of a home energy audit is that it is a series of observations and tests that we perform throughout your home to “help you determine how much energy your home uses, where your home is losing energy, and which problems areas and fixes you should prioritize to make your home more efficient and comfortable. A home energy audit should be your first step before making energy-saving home improvements, as well as before adding a renewable energy system to your home.”
Save on Heating & Cooling Costs
Most people consider having a home energy audit performed because they are looking to save money on their energy bills. Studies show that implementing the recommendations that are made during a home energy audit you can reduce your power bills between 5-30% every month. Many times the changes that are recommended are not difficult to perform. When you get the report from your home energy audit we will prioritize our recommendations starting with the improvement that will make the largest impact.
Inadequate Attic & Roof Ventilation
Homeowners are frequently surprised to find out that there were problems in their home that they had no idea were there. The benefit of a home energy audit is that Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning can let you know about these problems so that they can be addressed. Windows and doors that need insulation; leaky faucets; mold growing in hidden places; improper ventilation; and more are all things that we are able to uncover during our home energy audits. Improper ventilation is one of the issues that we find on a regular basis during these audits. If your home is not properly ventilated your home will have to use more energy to keep your home comfortable and your energy bill will be through the roof.
Make an Old Home More Energy Efficient
As you complete these repairs your home will be able to run more efficiently. A more efficient home will be more comfortable for you and your family to live in. This efficiency is the reason that your energy bills will be lower. Some people are more concerned about being more comfortable inside their home than they are about saving money. Frequently homeowners find that for the same amount of money that they are currently spending on utilities they can actually keep their home at a more preferred temperature.
