What Is An Energy Audit?

What is an energy audit and do I need one? A KC home energy audit will help you determine how much energy your home is consuming and help you find the problem areas.
What is an energy audit

What is an energy audit:

A home energy audit is your first step in making your home more efficient, safer and more comfortable. An energy audit, also known as a home energy assessment, can help you find out how much energy your home uses and also evaluates the measures you should take to improve efficiency. Don’t forget, energy audits alone don’t save energy. You need to implement all the recommended improvements in order to save money! 

What does an energy audit include:

  • Blower Door Testing (which tests for air leaks, balancing of air distribution, duct leakage and air exchange)
  • CAZ Test (Combustion Appliance Zone)
  • Take Off (Thumb print of floor plan) with Efficiency Report
  • Complete Report & Recommendations for Improvement with best ROI (Return on Your Investment).

2011 Tax Credits and Local Incentives for Energy Savings

Although the federal tax credit for certain energy-efficient upgrades has been reduced for 2011, you can still save a bundle and be eco-friendly too by taking advantage of local incentives for energy savings as well as the new federal tax credits. Remember, making energy-efficient upgrades is almost always a cost-effective decision, even without incentives!

Federal tax credits beginning this year and going through 2016 will be limited to a maximum of $500 in lifetime savings for upgrading your home with things like biomass stoves and insulation. All the products qualifying for tax credits in 2010 still qualify.

However Missouri Gas Energy and Kansas City Power & Light are offering up to $1200 dollars in bill credits for an energy audit and qualified energy-efficient home improvements. Henges Insulation & Fireplaces in Olathe, Kan., is a certified contractor capable of performing a comprehensive home performance assessment or energy audit to qualify you for these savings.

Contact us for more information about federal and local energy savings incentives.
