First-Time Homeowner: Energy Audit

Every First-Time Homeowner Should Do an Energy Audit

According to New Home Source, every homeowner should consider conducting an energy audit on their new home. In doing so, you can save hundreds of dollars on your bills, help the environment by cutting back on energy consumption, or fix problems such as drafty rooms and lack of insulation.

What is an energy audit:

A KC home energy audit will help you determine how much energy your home is consuming and help you find the problem areas. 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).
