In any season, a leaky home costs money. How do you stop it?
It starts with a comprehensive home energy checkup.
A home energy assessment, also known as an energy check up, is the first step to assess how much energy your home consumes and to evaluate what measures you can take to make it more energy efficient. An assessment will show you problems that may, when corrected, save you significant amounts of money over time.
A professional energy auditor, like ACS, will use a variety of techniques and equipment to determine the energy efficiency of a structure. Thorough assessments often use equipment such as blower doors, which measure the extent of leaks in the building envelope, and infrared cameras, which reveal hard-to-detect areas of air infiltration and missing insulation.
The end goal is to save energy, save money, and make your home more comfortable. Installing energy efficient lighting and appliances, including a high efficiency cooling and heating system, will help. Also beneficial to energy saving, is creating a sealed barrier around your house, which acts like putting a blanket around the outside, minimizing the leaks. Upgrading your home to save energy can put anywhere from 5 to 30% of your energy expenses back in your pocket. To get a thorough home energy check-up call ACS today!
