Virginia Home Energy Audit
There are many different things that greatly reduce the energy efficiency of a home, including (but not limited to):
- Insufficient insulation
- Drafty windows and doors
- Leaky ducts
- Improperly sized HVAC equipment
- Air leaks
- And more
Our Comfort Home specialists will thoroughly inspect your attic and any crawl spaces your home may have, and by performing a home energy audit, we’ll be able to recommend the most effective insulation solution – including which material to use, where to insulate and how much you need. We can also perform air sealing and make sure your insulation’s performance won’t be compromised (air leaks actually reduce the effectiveness of insulation!).
Benefits of Home Energy Audits
In addition to ensuring you get the right type of insulation for your home, our visual energy audits in Virginia offer a number of other benefits. An audit can help:
- Identify ways to lower your energy bills
- Identify ways to make your home more comfortable, year in and year out
- Make sure your home is properly insulated
Beyond Insulation: Improve Energy Efficiency
Many homes built before the 1980s were not required to seal electrical and plumbing penetrations to the attic and any crawl spaces. Because of that, many older homes have tiny holes, cracks and gaps through which air leaks in and out. Air leakage can cost you money in added heating and cooling costs and affects your overall comfort (anyone with a drafty home knows it’s no fun!).
The results of our home energy audit will help our Comfort Home specialist create a plan to improve the energy efficiency of your home. Air sealing is the first step. Our Comfort Home specialists will find those unsealed sites, and we can also inspect the room over your garage or rooms with walls adjacent to the attic, as well as access points to the attic and knee wall storage areas.
All attics need ventilation to perform properly, so part of each insulation package contains provisions to ensure your soffit vents are free of debris and materials to help them stay that way.
