New homeowners in Arizona are often shocked and dismayed by sky-high utility bills. The costs to air condition your home can climb rapidly when temperatures begin rising. What if there was a way to potentially reduce these costs? One of the easiest ways is to conduct a home energy audit to save energy and improve the efficiency, comfort, and safety of your house.
What’s a Home Energy Audit All About?
One of the many benefits of the 2022 Inflation Reduction Act is that homeowners can get a credit of up to $150 for a qualified home energy audit. A home energy audit is a multi-step inspection of the potential drains on the energy efficiency of your home.
Our experts will carefully examine your entire HVAC system to maximize its energy efficiency. Often, there are simple issues, like clogged air filters, that can be replaced to make your system instantly more efficient. Other times, it may be improper insulation or leaking air ducts which can increase your electricity bill as much as 40%, costing you hundreds or even thousands of extra dollars every year.
As part of the audit, your house will be evaluated to identify hot and cold spots that could indicate costly leaks. This includes windows, doors, attic, ductwork, and other areas throughout your home. A window or door that isn’t properly sealed can be a big source of wasted energy. Simple repairs can make a big difference on your energy bill each month.
Energy audits can also uncover potential hazards in your house like improper ventilation, which can degrade air quality. There also may be areas inside your home with high humidity that might cause mold and mildew growth.
