Energy efficiency is a topic that is heavy on a lot of homeowner’s minds—and for good reason. Energy efficiency means cost efficiency! If you find yourself cranking up your furnace more and more and your energy bills climbing more and more, it may be time to consider having a home energy audit. Home energy audits are designed specifically to help you find and solve your home’s energy efficiency problems.
Your air ducts will be assessed to determine if they are excessively dirty, sealed properly or to find out if any gaps or holes have been formed. Then, you can take the proper steps to remedy any existing problems with the air ducts. Believe it or not, but up to 25-30% of your home’s air can be “lost” due to inefficient air ducts.
Your A/C and furnace will be checked for electrical problems, loose parts, and energy usage—all very important to an optimally functioning HVAC.
Your home’s ventilation system will be checked to make sure it is blowing out air as it should and there are no blockages, leaks, or other problems.
