An energy audit probably isn’t the first thing on your mind when thinking about maintaining your home’s energy use. You may often hear about saving on energy and electricity with LED lights and solar energy, but many home owners don’t see all the small ways that their house can operate even more efficiently – helping the environment, and ultimately, helping you save money on energy bills. At Go Green Heating and Cooling we want you to be well-informed on how to make your home as comfortable as possible as well as cost-effective for you.
Why do you need an energy audit?
An energy audit is an inspection and analysis of the energy flow of the home. It can help you identify any energy wasters and help you find ways to conserve energy. Energy audits include a process to decrease the energy input into the system without influencing the output. The purpose of the audit is to determine if your home wastes energy and where it’s wasting energy.
Is it worth getting an energy audit done?
Yes. While getting an energy audit completed at your home is often a paid service, it can save you more money in the long run. A lot of homeowners don’t realize how much money they can save on their electric bills by having energy efficiency in their homes. An estimated 10% of energy that your Air Conditioning system uses, is then wasted on inefficient insulation in your home. Energy audits analyze that energy efficiency so you can know areas that need upgrading or areas you can strive to conserve more energy in.
