First things first – an energy audit is an assessment of the energy needs and efficiency of a building and/or buildings. You may associate them more with larger buildings and complexes that are corporately owned. But did you know that, as a homeowner, you have the option of receiving an energy audit on your home? There is a reason that these companies budget to hire HVAC experts yearly to audit their energy usage and efficiency. We want to show you why having audit performed on your home is so important.
There are many benefits to have a yearly energy audit performed on your home. In the audit, one of the main things the auditor will test is the efficiency of your AC system. Although your unit might have been given a specific efficiency label at purchase, years of hard work, wear and tear could change that. The more effective your unit is, the more money you get to keep in your wallet. In fact, it is suggested that nearly every structure wastes 10% of its energy due to inefficient equipment. If you are looking to save energy and money, an energy audit is your next step.
What does an audit look like?
Energy audits are typically conducted by professionally licensed HVAC companies. For example, an HVAC company like Go Green Heating and Cooling will send out a licensed auditor at your request. The auditor will come equipped with the latest and most innovative tools in order to test and give you the most accurate reading of your home’s energy usage. Secondly, they will examine your AC unit, ducts and insulation in search of ways to improve energy efficiency. Energy auditors have one goal in mind – saving you the most money.
