If you want to maximize the comfort of your home and make sure it runs efficiently, you may want to consider a home energy audit in Scottsdale, AZ or the Phoenix metro area.
The energy audit is important because it assesses how much energy your home uses and breaks it down by area. Is the air running properly through the ducts? Is there enough insulation? There are many facets of energy use that go unnoticed when living in the desert climate and a home energy audit in Scottsdale, AZ can help you figure out how energy efficient your house is. It’s easy to assume that the majority of wasted energy results from running your air conditioning system during our scorching summers. But that’s not always the case! It can be because of window and door frame cracks. It can also be leaks coming from the duct work or the result of an older furnace or thermostat that’s causing the heating and cooling system in your house to work harder than it should.
A home energy audit will check every nook and cranny of your house so you don’t have to worry about where you’re losing energy and money. John’s Refrigeration runs blower door and air hood tests and uses an infrared camera and smoke sticks during the evaluation process to ensure the most accurate findings. The team inspects the home’s ductwork, attic, A/C, heating, lighting, and appliance usage. You would be surprised at how much one deficient factor affects the entire efficiency of a house!
Once the audit is complete, the team will outline where in your home it’s most valuable and necessary to make improvements. Then you can determine which (if not all) adjustments are feasible for your household and budget. Sometimes changes require updates to the heating and cooling system, and sometimes efficiency can be improved by how appliances are used. An energy audit will make you aware of your energy use, which is the first step in creating an energy efficient home.
