An energy evaluation will help you determine where your home is losing energy, and therefore losing money and comfort. Energy costs are on the rise, and it’s more important than ever to control your costs and save money while still being comfortable in your home.
You can perform a do-it-yourself energy evaluation or you can employ an expert who can provide a more complete evaluation with the right techniques and equipment. Performing your own energy evaluation may help you locate common problems such as noticeable areas of air loss but an expert can help you with more extensive energy problems by:
- examining the outside of your home for problem areas around walls, eaves, joints and external fixtures
- checking windows and doors, and whether they’re tightly sealed
- inspecting attic, basement and crawlspace
- inspecting insulation to ensure it’s properly installed in all the right places, and that the right type and levels of insulation are used
- reviewing your HVAC system to ensure optimal performance
- inspecting your ducts to ensure proper sealing and insulation
- performing a blower door test and infrared camera examination to determine the amount of air that’s leaking in and out of your home
- examining your water heater to check for efficiency and proper insulation
- other inspections including lighting, additional features of your home and resident behavior review
A thorough examination of energy use is the key to long-term savings and comfort. A professional not only has the right equipment, but the training and experience to provide a complete, effective energy evaluation. An expert is almost guaranteed to find more problems and save you more money (provided you implement the suggestions made from the evaluation) than if you performed the evaluation yourself.
