When it’s Time for a Home Energy Audit

IMG_4699.jpg

Anyone who has ever experienced the discomfort that comes along with owning a home that is drafty or unevenly heated in the winter knows how annoying the experience can be. Not only can comfort levels drop, but energy bills can skyrocket. Sadly enough, many people sit back and allow these and other problems to progress without taking any action to remedy them.

The fact is, you don’t have to be uncomfortable anymore. The path to comfort starts with a home energy audit.

The Benefits of a Home Energy Audit

Having a home energy audit conducted is a simple process. A CES professional will come into your home and conduct an inspection that takes into consideration the quality of your air sealing, insulation and other factors that can affect home comfort and energy bills. Once the issues at hand are laid out in front of you, you can make decisions as to how you’d like to proceed.

A typical home energy audit includes the following components:

  • Blower Door Testing — A blower door test can help you to determine if your home suffers from any issues associated with poor air sealing. Once leaks are discovered, they can be addressed in order to fix the problem.

  • Expertly Pinpointed Problem Areas — It takes a trained professional to fully determine what’s going on within your home that might be affecting comfort and energy efficiency. A home energy audit takes the guesswork out of the scenario, allowing you to make an educated decision about how what to do next.

  • Full Report with Suggested Upgrades/Fixes — For those who don’t have a strong handle on home performance, it’s not easy to know which upgrades or fixes need to happen. A home energy audit ends with a full report that details the issues your home faces, as well as suggestions about how to move forward.

  • A “Suite” of Energy Savings — There’s nothing worse than spending more money than you have to on your energy bills. A home energy audit leads to fixes that can increase energy efficiency to a large degree (air sealing, insulation and duct sealing), saving you money that you might never have known you were throwing away.
