An assessment of your home’s overall energy efficiency, an energy audit is extremely beneficial. It shows you exactly where your home is losing energy and costing you extra money—essentially, it’s a fast-track solution to maximizing the energy efficiency of your home!
A home energy audit can:
Help you save on your energy bills: An energy audit can uncover spots where your home is wasting energy (low insulation levels, leaky ductwork, etc.) so they can be taken care of. This can save you a ton of money on your energy bills!
Increase the comfort of your home year round: If your home is leaking air and isn’t properly insulated, it means that warm air can more easily leak in during the summer and leak out in the winter. This means your home isn’t as comfortable as it could be! After an energy audit, your home won’t have any hidden air leaks or inadequate insulation levels.
Reveal problems before they become major issues: Sometimes homes have a lot of hidden structural and safety problems an energy audit can reveal. For instance, air leaks and improper ventilation can lead to moisture problems and mold growth, which may not become visible until severe levels are reached and you end up having to pay a lot of money in repairs.
Help increase the resale and marketing value of your home: Energy-efficient homes are more appealing to homebuyers. In fact, according to a study published in The Appraisal Journal, for every $1 decrease in yearly energy costs, the market value of a home increases by $20 (learn more on RESNET®).
Help you positively impact the environment: For those who want to stay green, an energy audit is helpful in this way. When you use less energy, pollution and greenhouse gas emissions are reduced. Not only will your wallet thank you, the earth will as well!
