Energy Audits: What Are They and How Can They Help?

An energy audit is a detailed assessment of your home’s overall energy use, and can help you come up with A/C and heating maintenance plans so you can save money and maintain consistent energy efficiency year-round. Before you schedule an appointment with a professional Phoenix heating repair service:

A Few Things You Should Know:

  • The audit is a room-by-room inspection of your residence
  • Your past utility bills will also be examined
  • The professional auditor uses special tools such as infrared cameras and surface thermometers to determine exactly where your home is wasting energy and money

Preparing for Your Energy Evaluation:

  • Make a list of existing problems, such as condensation, degraded attic insulation, or drafts
  • Have copies or a summary of your home’s annual energy bills
  • Ensure someone will be home during working hours
  • Know your average thermostat setting for winter and summer and whether every room has or uses a thermostat

During the assessment, listen carefully to your auditor as he or she will offer excellent advice on how to save energy, such as adding radiant barrier to prevent attic heat buildup.
