Early Fall Energy Efficiency
Early fall is one of the most beautiful times of the year in the Foothills. It’s also a time for slowing down, which means taking a moment to look at whether or not you’re ready for winter. Cooler temps will be here before you know it, and there are a few things that all residents in Folsom, El Dorado Hills, Citrus Heights and Granite Bay can benefit from focusing on as we continue to transition into fall.
If there’s one great place to start, it’s with energy efficiency. Getting your home optimized for the fall is one of the best ways to ensure that nothing goes wrong once winter finally comes, and it all starts with a home energy audit.
What is a Home Energy Audit?
There are a number of different ways to look at a home and how it operates. Think of your home as a complex system of different variables (like environment, occupants, appliances, and HVAC systems) that work in tandem with one another to create an operational system. When one thing is out of whack, the entire home can suffer. This is where getting a home energy audit comes in. A home energy audit is like the visit to the doctor that your home has needed for so many years, even if you haven’t realized it.
Our team of energy efficiency specialists will take the time to look for any issues that might be contributing to poor home performance, such as cracks/leaks and underperforming insulation. From there, we’ll determine a plan that best fits your budget and needs, answering any questions you may have in the process.
Typical Energy Efficiency Upgrades
As each home is unique, so it’s impossible to tell exactly which types of upgrades your home will need without first conducting a home energy audit. Once a post-audit report has been generated, however, you’ll know exactly what you’re up against, as well as which route we believe may be best to take. Typical energy efficiency upgrades can include:
Old, dirty insulation may be costing you money! We’ll outfit your home with insulation that will promote whole home performance.
Cracks and leaks in your home can cause conditioned air to escape and unconditioned air to enter. Air sealing is the solution.
No matter how high in quality your heating and cooling system may be, it will always benefit from getting a tune-up. HVAC upgrades like tune-ups and maintenance can help you to stay on top of the game, no matter what time of year it is.
