We offer energy audit services, in large part to help local homeowners improve energy efficiency throughout their homes. After an energy audit, and after you make recommended changes to your home or HVAC system, the heating and cooling systems run more smoothly. That means lower monthly bills and a more comfortable home.
This is a primary reason to schedule this service—but not the only reason local homeowners ask about home energy audits. This service can also make your home a safer and healthier place.
Checking the Vents
One of the main reasons to have your heating system inspected is to see that your heater is venting properly. And a thorough inspection for safety and performance is included with our energy audits.
We inspect the flue vents for any potential leakage. We also check gas connections and heat exchangers, in case of a carbon monoxide leak. A carbon monoxide detector is important, and helps you learn about leaks and get out, but this type of inspection and audit means prevention, and that is just as important.
Part of an energy audit includes a look at the electrical connections to your furnace, boiler, and air conditioner. A technician can see whether the system is at risk for a sudden breakdown. In addition, you can feel better about the electrical safety of these systems, which tend to require a lot of energy.
Aside from preventing carbon monoxide leaks, an energy audit can improve your air quality in many ways. We check to see that you have enough ventilation in your home. An energy audit improves airflow, which can also make your air healthier. And technicians may recommend indoor air quality equipment tailored to your HVAC system.
