A Performance and Comfort Evaluation of Your Home
Are you concerned about the rising cost of energy and what your home uses?
Does your home feel drafty even after you crank up the heat?
Are you wondering about the condition of your gas or oil fired furnace?
Are dragging your feet about giving your home an energy audit because you don’t really understand what it is and what it can do for you?
If you answer yes to any of these questions, you should speak with a professional, full service home performance contractor, aka as a home-energy auditor.
Save Money. Improve Indoor Environment
The average American home wastes energy through air leakage to the outdoors from poorly fitted doors & windows, and hidden holes and cracks to unconditioned attics, basements and crawl spaces. Another avenue of wasted energy is the lack of, or poorly installed insulation. Furnaces, water heaters and other appliances can unknowingly waste valuable energy. But you needn’t sit by and watch your dollars burn away. There is a controlled and scientific method to determine just where and how your energy usage can be reduced, often times significantly.
Increase Energy Efficiency
A home-energy audit is a way to benchmark your home energy use and determine what measures to take to become more energy efficient. It will measure the efficiency and safety of your home’s heating systems, show ways to optimize water heating, locate building envelope air leakage as well as locate insufficient wall, ceiling and floor insulation. Major electrical appliances and lighting are also appraised.
Does your home need an Energy Audit?
Your home will benefit from an energy audit if you answer ‘yes’ to one or more of the following questions:
Hot rooms in the summer
Cold floors in the winter
Dry indoor air in the winter
High fossil fuel and/or electrical bills
Uneven heating and cooling
Mold, mildew, musty or bad odors
