Winter energy bills are going to be higher than ever this winter! Is your home ready for winter energy price spikes?
A fall home energy assessment will help you find the places where your home is losing energy so you can implement the right solutions and save money on your heating bills. Keep reading to learn more about why you should schedule a home energy audit this fall.
What Is a Home Energy Audit?
A home energy audit is an assessment of your home’s energy efficiency. It focuses on your insulation, air leakage, windows and doors, heating and cooling systems, and more to determine where energy loss is occurring.
Home Energy Medics’ home energy audit checklist includes:
Blower door testing to measure air leakage
Infrared camera analysis to locate gaps in insulation
Basic duct leakage assessment to see if energy is being lost through leaky ducts
Combustion safety testing to make sure appliances are working and venting properly
Heating system efficiency testing for your furnace or boiler and water heater
Interior and exterior visual home inspection to look for moisture, insulation damage, and more
At the end of your energy inspection, you’ll receive a detailed report of our findings. You’ll also get recommendations for the improvements that will have the greatest impact on your energy costs and home comfort levels. With a home energy audit, you can be sure you’re spending money on improvements that will really make a difference in your home.
How Can a Home Energy Audit Help in the Winter?
Fall is one of the best times to get an energy audit because it gives you a chance to make energy-saving upgrades before heating season is in full swing. Depending on your energy audit results, you may benefit from new insulation, air sealing, heating system maintenance, window replacement, duct sealing, or a combination of services.
With the right combination of energy efficiency upgrades you’ll notice benefits like:
Lower heating costs
A warmer, more comfortable home
More consistent temperatures throughout your home
No more cold drafts
Healthier indoor air quality
Less risk of ice dams
