What Are Energy Inspections?
If you’re interested in saving energy and money while making your house more comfortable, this video will explain the process of energy inspections. Energy inspections are a series of tests that are conducted in your home to see where you can make improvements to become more energy-efficient.
Upgrading your home to include energy-efficient appliances and insulation can increase your energy savings by anywhere from 5% to 30%.
That’s a lot of savings, just for making a few simple changes to your home!
Home energy inspections are completed by an energy auditor. One of these experts will conduct checks around the exterior and interior of your home to assess where there are losses of energy. Remember that “energy” consists of more than just the electricity powering your lights and appliances. The climate of your home can be a source of loss if your home is not properly insulated.
Having an auditor come to conduct energy inspections can happen in any month of the year. With their equipment, they will be able to determine any leaks or weak points whether they’re assessing loss of warmth in the winter or loss of cool air in the summer. If you want to lower your energy bill and decrease your energy footprint, ask an auditor to conduct an energy inspection and offer feedback about improvements you can make to your home.
