|What are the benefits of a home energy assessment?|
Lower Bills - Making simple upgrades can help make your home more energy efficient, which can result in lower energy bills. This means you have more disposable income.
Comfort - The more efficient your home is, the better sealed it is against the outdoors. Reducing drafts will help your home feel more comfortable.
Health – A home that is energy efficient is also healthier for its inhabitants because air sealing will keep out unwanted insects, rodents, dust, and moisture.
Preventative Maintenance - Your assessment could help identify things that, if they’re not addressed, could lead to big problems down the road. For example, improper insulation could lead to mold or mildew. A home energy assessment can help you stop these problems before they start.
Good for the Environment - A home that wastes less energy uses less energy, which is better for both your pocketbook and the environment. Approximately 16% of all greenhouse gases in the U.S. come from homes. Energy efficiency is one of the easiest ways to lower your carbon footprint and go green!
Save on Improvements - No matter what improvements you decide to make, there are thousands of dollars available in rebates and incentives. That’s a save-save situation, and that sounds like a win-win!
A Safer Home - A home energy assessment will identify potential safety concerns, such as gas leaks, a clogged dryer vent, or moisture issues and give you the information or tools you need to address these issues.
Higher Value, Better Investment - Should you ever sell your home, a better investment for you is a better investment for prospective buyers. More and more, “Energy Efficient Homes” are sought after by prospective buyers.
Energy Security – Improvements in energy efficiency can lead to reduced demand for energy, improving our national security.
