If you would like to look after the environment and your budget better, you might want to make sure that all your electrical, heating, and air conditioning equipment are working as efficiently as possible. Customers can benefit from a home performance audit in Baton Rouge to improve their comfort and reduce their household bills.
Different Areas of Energy Use Covered
A home performance audit will focus on different areas of energy waste in your home. First, an analysis of your fuel bills will be conducted, to find out whether you are likely to lose money because of a low efficiency system. The inspection will include a health and safety audit, blower door test, combustion appliance tests, and the assessment of your insulation performance.
As buildings consume 40 percent of all U.S. energy use, the government encourages homeowners to improve their heating, electricity, and air conditioning efficiency. You can sign up for a Home Energy Challenge in your state, and benefit from lower bills and tariffs.
Helps You Identify Problems
The home performance audit is carried out by licensed professionals to identify problems with insulation, assess the performance of your HVAC system, and provide you with recommendations on how to improve your energy efficiency through weatherproofing, heating system maintenance, and the installation of storm windows.
Once you know what to focus on, you can implement changes to reduce heat and energy loss in your home. By clearing or upgrading your current heating and air conditioning unit, weatherproofing your home, and installing energy saving electrical equipment, you will get more heat for less money. You can eliminate chimney leakage, install door sweeps, and get the weatherstripping completed.
