Be Proactive — Get a Home Energy Audit
Every home uses energy, but as a responsible homeowner, you don’t want to waste a precious resource. You also don’t want to run your bills up any higher than they have to be, especially in the summer months when you’re running the air conditioner all the time. You’re probably already doing basic things like turning lights off when you leave the room, but there’s more that can be done to make your home efficient. To find out what’s right for your house, you should consider a home energy audit. You can save a lot of cash over the course of a year by breaking bad habits and making your space more efficient.
- Getting a home energy audit can help you save between 5-percent and 30-percent on your energy bills. That’s a big savings over the course of a year, especially if you have a large family and tend to have high energy bills.
- Having a professional inspect your home can help you find leaks around your house that may not be visible to the untrained eye. Sealing these leaks can help you save on your heating and cooling bill and might not cost more than a few dollars. Your home will also be more comfortable and you’ll be able to minimize drafts and hot spots.
- A professional auditor will help inspect your furnace and ductwork to make sure they are working as efficiently as possible. Leaking air ducts can cause you to spend significantly more than you otherwise would because more warm or cool air needs to be pumped into your home to make it comfortable.
A furnace that isn’t working properly can be a safety hazard, but it can also run up your heating bills dramatically, especially if you live in an area that gets very cold in the winter months.
