An energy audit is an examination from a qualified professional designed to identify spots in your home where heated or cooled air may be leaking out, the insulation may not be what it needs to be, or the home may otherwise be less than ideally energy efficient. We often poo-poo such methods here in Mesa, AZ, largely because people think energy audits are only beneficial in areas with cold winters. Nothing could be further from the truth. By auditing your home, you can enjoy a number of benefits that have nothing to do with the relative temperature outside. Here are some benefits to an energy audit that you would do well to consider this fall.
Improved Energy Savings
The biggest benefit to an energy audit is identifying ways your home can be more energy efficient. That can translate into big savings in your monthly heating and cooling bills, as well as lowering the risk of repairs for your heater or air conditioner.
Improved Household Comfort
Inefficient homes often feature blustery drafts, warm or cold spots, or other conditions that can affect your comfort and quality of life. Energy audits can help put a stop to them and allow your household to enjoy improved comfort levels.
Stopping Hard-to-Find Problems
Energy audits often uncover issues you never knew existed, such as breaches in your ductwork and poor ventilation. Correcting those issues simply won’t take place until they’re spotted, which energy audits can do quite well.
Improved Resale Value
An energy efficient home is a tangible asset which can pay dividends when the time comes to sell. The improved efficiency may even add to the asking price.
Improving the Environment
According to noted sources, household inefficiency contributes up to 16% of the greenhouse gases generated each year. Improving your home’s efficiency means a greener environment as well as less waste.
