A home energy audit is often the first step in making your home more efficient. An audit can help you assess how much energy your home uses and evaluate what measures you can take to improve efficiency. But remember, audits alone don't save energy. You need to implement the recommended improvements. ENERGY STAR provides extensive information about home improvement projects to enhance energy efficiency, lower utility bills, and increase comfort.
You can perform a simple energy audit yourself, or have a professional energy auditor perform a more thorough audit.
Leaky windows and doors don’t just make your home drafty--they also make your monthly energy bill higher. Many leaks are easy to detect, but ones that are out of sight can be sapping heating and cooling out of your house and dollars out of your wallet.
Hire a Professional Home Energy Auditor
If you are interested in getting specific recommendations for improving the efficiency of your home, consider contacting a professional Home Energy Auditor. A professional auditor can use a variety of techniques and equipment to determine the energy efficiency of your home. Thorough audits 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.
With the rising cost of energy prices, homeowners are looking for ways to save money on utility bills. Many homeowners will take measures into their own hands by caulking windows, adding insulation and filling-in leaky gaps, but energy audits can correctly identify energy leaks that aren't obvious or easy to find.
With professional home energy auditing, identifying and fixing the hidden leaks can not only save the homeowner up to 30% on heating and cooling costs each year, but also on potential expense of fixing things that don't solve the problem.
Energy audits eliminate guesswork. Many homeowners spend money on windows, heating and AC equipment but find that it doesn't solve their problem.
Getting a home energy audit is similar to getting adiagnostic befor attempting to fix a car: you wouldn't buy parts first without knowing what the problem was.
