Energy Audits…Are They Worth It?

I’m often asked if energy audits are worth it.  YES!

Having the energy efficiency of your home evaluated by an experienced certified professional using blower door equipment which measures the extent of leaks in the building envelope, infrared cameras which reveal hard-to-detect areas of air infiltration and missing insulation and other specialty equipment  helps identify cost effective ways to improve the comfort and efficiency of your home.

The result of an energy audit will disclose where to seal and insulate the outer shell of your home by:

  • Sealing air leaks to stop drafts
  • Adding insulation to prevent heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer

The energy audit will also let you know if  your home is heated or cooled efficiently and determine whether your heating and cooling ducts need to be sealed and/or insulated.

Imagine your heater and/or air conditioner not working harder than it has to in order to keep your home comfortable OR not having that razor of a breeze cutting through your home in the winter…all while SAVING money.
