Do I Really Need this Advice? Maybe I Could Do My Own Home Energy Audit?
It is true that the most common recommendations from home energy audits are to 1) seal air gaps and, 2) add insulation. But, assuming that you have done those things already, a good home energy report will delve much deeper into the subject. The report will suggest remedies, and improvements which will not usually occur to the average home owner.
Home energy audit (HEA) reports as recommended by the government’s EnergyStar website can make specific recommendations on energy leaks which are frequently more much less obvious. The HEA will reveal heat losses involving moisture leakage, unbalanced heating, or other problems that won’t be solved by simply plugging draughts and adding insulation, or even by adding a higher efficiency furnace.
Only Commission a Home Energy Audit After You’ve Taken the Obvious Energy Cost Cutting Measures
As a thorough residential energy audit is likely to run to several hundred dollars, only go ahead with a home energy audit if you intend to invest further in order to implement the recommendations given. No matter how good the advice provided is, these reports are not going to provide value, if you dont take the advice and act on the recommendations.
Make sure to, grab your previous energy bills, and use the EnergyStar website advice, as follows:
“If you have five minutes and your last 12 months of utility bills, use the ENERGY STAR Home Energy Yardstick to compare your home’s energy efficiency to similar homes across the country and get recommendations for energy-saving home improvements from ENERGY STAR. You will also need to enter some basic information about your home (such as zip code, age, square footage, and number of occupants). If you don’t have your bills, contact your utility for a 12-month summary.”
The decision to make about paying for certain energy improvements, for example, if you have a broken appliance and need to replace it. Needs no expensive report! But, for most people buying there will be other important priorities for your household energy bills, that you are unaware of.
