Why should you consider a home energy assessment (also known as a home energy audit)

If you’re looking for a way to reduce your energy costs or cut down on your home’s energy consumption, then consider having an energy assessment also known as a home energy audit conducted in your home. A home energy assessment or home energy audit will not only help you save money and reduce your carbon footprint, but also benefit you and your family in many other ways.

Find out how energy efficient your home is

Have you ever wondered how much energy is consumed in your home on a regular basis? What about how much money you might be able to save on your energy bill by upgrading your appliances and improving your home’s wall insulation? A home energy audit can give you a feel for your home’s energy consumption and how much a few upgrades might improve usage. It will also help you discover how you can improve your home’s energy efficiency.

Ensure your home is a safe and healthy place to live.

You can also choose to have safety checks performed on your naturally venting combustible appliances. If the pressures between your home and the outside are unbalanced, or there are flue blockages, then your home may be prone to “back drafting.” Blocked flues or improper pressure levels can move carbon dioxide and other gases back into your home rather than outside. If you have a gas hot water heater or other gas appliances, the combustion gases could wind up in your home’s ventilation system.. Proper sealing in the ventilation system can help eliminate these problems. During an energy assessment your ventilation levels will be checked to make sure your home has a proper fresh air exchange. Gas leaks are another common problem that can be detected during a comprehensive home energy audit that includes a health and safety assessment.

Make your home a more comfortable, cheaper place to live.

Once your home energy audit has been completed, you may be able to make your home a safer and more energy efficient place by having your ductwork resealed, your home’s insulation strengthened, or your furnace and other appliances upgraded. This will make paying your utility bills easier and living in your home more comfortable. Would you like to have a home energy audit conducted in your Cincinnati home? Contact National today!
