Why You Should Add a Home Energy Assessment to Your Spring To-Do List

Spring has arrived! A home energy assessment is an important, but often overlooked, part of staying on top of your home maintenance tasks for the spring. During a home energy assessment, a trained energy advisor will inspect your home and identify areas where you can improve the energy efficiency of your home. From air sealing to insulation, a comprehensive assessment can help you make small changes that add up to big savings, increased comfort, and home safety.


In this blog post, we’ll dive deeper into those three main benefits of an energy assessment:


Identify Sources of Energy Waste & Save

A home energy assessment helps identify areas that need improvement or repair in order to maintain optimal efficiency within the home. Some of the commonly identified opportunities for reducing energy waste include making the switch to LED light bulbs, installing a programmable thermostat, air sealing areas such as windows and doors to avoid drafts, utilizing door sweeps, upgrading the energy star appliances, and upgrading insulation. Fun fact: Depending on your household size and income, our team may be able to make these improvements for you at no cost to you!


Improve Home Comfort

These energy efficiency improvements focus on reducing energy use without sacrificing comfort in your living space. Once you have received the results from the home energy assessment, you will be able to take steps to better maintain comfortable temperatures in your home year-round while saving on your energy bills. You’ll be amazed at the difference in comfort you’ll see, for instance, when you are no longer combatting comfort concerns such as air leaks or drafts and your heating and cooling systems don’t have to work quite so hard to keep up!


Identify Safety Concerns

Ensuring the safety of our homes is a top priority for all of us, which is why it’s a key component of our home energy assessments. These assessments are crucial when it comes to identifying potential dangers, such as carbon monoxide poisoning due to back drafting appliances, moisture issues leading to the growth of mold and mildew, gas leaks, fuel line leaks, and fire hazards caused by non-vented appliances like dryers, bath fans, range hoods, and microwaves. With such a range of risks, it’s important to take a proactive approach to ensure the safety of our homes so that we can have peace of mind and help prevent any hazardous situations from occurring.
