A great way to improve energy efficiency is to have an energy audit.
Energy audits are effective ways to increase the energy efficiency of your home or office. But besides getting the most heating and cooling possible from the energy you use, there are several other benefits of an energy audit. Let’s take a two big ones:
For the vast majority of individuals, saving money is the single biggest reason to have an audit. By identifying places where energy is going to waste, you can reduce your usage. This identification of problem areas is where the energy audit really shines. Almost everyone knows their HVAC system, home or office could be at least a little bit more energy efficient, but not everyone will know where or how to make changes.
For example, do the windows need extra weather-stripping or caulking? If so, which ones? Or maybe the doors do and if so, which doors? Perhaps purchasing a more efficient air conditioner or furnace will save money on heating and cooling bills, but how much money saving is possible and how long will it take to make back the money spent on a newer and better HVAC system? An energy audit can either answer these questions or provide educated estimates that can help shape a home or business owner’s HVAC decisions.
For those who prioritize nature over money, helping the environment is a great reason to get an energy audit. Less energy usage means using less electricity and fuel to stay comfortable. This can lead to fewer carbon emissions, less global warming and a brighter future for everyone.
