As more and more homeowners in the Washington, DC area experience higher utility bills and learn about the importance of energy efficiency, reducing the home's carbon footprint is of increasing importance. Home Energy Medics has you covered with a range of services designed to help you "go green."
High Energy BillsIf you're like most people, your utility bills are becoming a costlier portion of your monthly expenses.
We all know the day will eventually come when energy bills skyrocket. A home performance energy audit with Home Energy Medics will identify ways to significantly lower natural gas, electric, and oil bills.
BOOST EFFICIENCY & LOWER ENERGY BILLS
We'll determine how well your home is retaining heat and cooled air through proper air sealing and insulation and evaluate appliances, lighting, and other aspects to save energy. We'll also evaluate your energy bills to see what's contributing to your energy usage. Together, we'll come up with a plan tailored to your home that is designed to help boost efficiency and cut costs.
REDUCING YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
Want to be greener? Many people hold the mistaken assumption that their car is the biggest contributor to energy waste. The reality, however, is that 21% of US energy consumption comes from homes. Most North American homes run on some combination of dirty fossil fuel sources—be it the coal that burns as you flip a light switch or turn down the air conditioning, or the gas or oil that burns when you turn up the heat. Energy efficiency improvements--including air sealing, duct sealing, and insulation upgrades can help you dramatically lessen your home's environmental impact while simultaneously reducing your utility bills.

Just looking for additional insulation in your attic or sealing up air leaks? Did you know that making certain changes to your home can result in unforeseen consequences? That is why we always recommend a full home energy audit by Home Energy Medics prior to implementing any efficiency measures. This will provide a full view of your house, it's systems and what can be done to improve ALL areas of your home. Best of all, we refund all or part of the audit cost when you choose to have us implement the solutions.
Home Energy Medics did a wonderful job on our house. We now have much better heating and cooling. The original audit was very revealing of heat leakage points throughout the house. I had no idea that recessed lighting "cans" could leak so much outside air into the house.
