Are you seeing constant spikes in your electricity and/or heating bill? Have you ever questioned the efficiency of your heating system or the working order of your washer and dryer? If you’ve answered yes to both these questions, you should seriously think about having a professional conduct an energy audit in Gilbert AZ or wherever your home is located in the East Valley. The objective of an energy audit is to pinpoint places or parts of your home where you are losing energy.
At John’s Refrigeration, our energy audit process is both unique and comprehensive. The first part of our process is to schedule an appointment with the homeowner to talk about their concerns while asking questions about the home’s current energy efficiency.
After the initial meeting, the technician will inspect the entire property, including the ductwork, attic and/or crawlspace, the air conditioning and heating system, and the lighting and appliances.
Following the inspection, the technician will perform some tests to get reliable readings on the efficiency of the home. These tests show if the home has any energy leaks and helps determine if the home has positive or negative pressure.
Upon completion of the tests, we present the homeowner with our recommendations and provide a plan of action. A variety of issues can be the cause of inefficiencies in the home. Oftentimes we suggest an upgrade of appliances to Energy Star systems, but more times than not it tends to be a heating unitissue and that’s where we dig a little deeper.
John’s Five Step Home Efficiency Program
The box on the roof or exterior wall of your property has no function without proper ventilation; it’s just a box that blows hot or cold air, which is not efficient and offers little in the way of true comfort. If there are any gaps or repair work needed to the heating system, we have the experience and expertise to carry out the job through our five step process:
- Size and seal your duct system properly
- Fix pressure balance problems
- Fresh air & purification or filtration
- New HVAC equipment
For a full overview on our five step approach please take a look at this video.
Only by addressing all issues (i.e. steps one through five) can we truly help you live in a home that is safe, comfortable, and reliable – one that really works for you!
