The climate in Boulder City, NV is variable and, as such, your home needs to be prepared for just about every weather scenario. So, when you take a look at your energy bills and realize you’re paying far more than necessary, it’s time for a change.
That’s where an Ambient Edge home energy audit comes in. Simply call (702) 723-4704 and we can help you find out how you’re losing money and provide you with easy, effective solutions to help save energy and money at the same time.
How to Know if You Need a Home Energy Audit
If you have never had an energy audit done on your current home, now is the time. You may be shocked by how much money you’re losing when the heating and air conditioning you’re paying for is going straight out the door (or through the windows, roof, garage, etc.)
Not only will a home energy audit help you understand how you use energy throughout your house, but you’ll also get a full picture of where energy is being wasted, how to consume less energy, and save money.
The improvements you make after your home energy audit can also help increase the comfort of your home for less money as well as potentially making your home a healthier place to live. Removing sources of dust, dirt, and moisture are all steps to help you breathe easier.
If you’re planning on selling your home in the next 10 to 15 years, making the most current energy-efficient upgrades can increase the resale value of your home, according to the EnergyStar program.
What We Look for During Your Home Energy Audit
Ambient Edge is committed to doing a complete and thorough inspection of your home, indoors and outdoors, during your home energy audit. Some of the items we look at include:
- Windows, walls, and doors
- Roof and eaves
- Attic and crawlspace
- Insulation types and levels
- HVAC system (central air conditioning unit and furnace) and ductwork
- Water heater
- A blower door test to look for leaks around your home
Some of the areas we look at are easily visible, others aren’t. Our goal is to find the problem areas where your heated and cooled air is escaping as well as not circulating properly in your home. We also look for infiltration points where frigid or sweltering outdoor air is creeping in, making your HVAC system work much harder.
Before and After Your Home Energy Audit
Before your home energy audit, your Ambient Edge inspector will ask questions to gather important information.
- We want to know what your goals are in having a home energy audit—new home purchase, saving money, maximum energy efficiency, etc.
- The number of people living in the house
- Your energy usage style. For example, most people are home and using energy all day, every day or most household members are out during the day and the bulk of energy usage happens at night and on weekends.
- Your ideal home temperatures in each season
- If anyone has health conditions such as asthma, lung issues, or allergies
If you have copies of your energy bills, those are helpful pieces of information for us as well. They help paint a complete picture of your energy usage over the course of a year.
After your home energy audit, we compile a custom energy usage report with detailed recommendations for repairs, improvements, and energy efficiencies. We can also work with you to help with HVAC repairs, upgrades, or efficiency steps, insulation, plumbing or water heater repairs or energy upgrades, and preventative maintenance plans.
