The holiday season is almost here, and you’ve probably been busy with gift-shopping for the last few weeks. Now that you’ve found the perfect presents, it’s time to focus on your home. Cleaning and last-minute decorating are on the list, but we think focusing on comfort and energy efficiency should also be a priority.
This holiday season, make your home a more comfortable and efficient place to be. Schedule an energy audit to find out where energy may be wasted in your home, and start saving more money for years to come.
What Is an Energy Audit?
During an energy audit, a technician will do a series of tests to determine where energy is lost in a home’s infrastructure or through the HVAC system when the heating and AC systems are running. They may check for several different things.
- Air leaks around doors and windows (found during blower door testing).
- A lack of insulation in the walls and/or attic.
- A lack of insulation in the ducts.
- Duct leakage.
- Faulty heating and cooling equipment.
- Safety issues from a heater.
- Indoor air quality concerns.
After the energy audit is complete, your technician makes recommendations on how to improve your home or your HVAC system in order to save money on heating and cooling costs—not just for the holiday season, but throughout the year.
After you make recommended changes—which can range from sealing leaks with caulk to replacing an old heating system—you should notice changes in your home. You might have better airflow throughout the home and fewer cold spots or warm spots in a room. Allergies and asthma symptoms can improve. And you may drastically reduce your bills! It’s a great gift for any home that uses a central AC and heating system.
