What is included in a home energy audit?
A home energy audit involves a thorough inspection of both the inside and outside of your home. It detects problem areas where your home is leaking air, heat, or cold—which you pay for through your energy bills. This could be through windows or doors, or it could be the result of lack of insulation or proper ventilation.
A Bullhead City home energy audit from Ambient Edge will include a complete inspection of areas such as:
- Attic and wall insulation
- Walls and exterior areas that could be leaking
- Mechanical systems
Our team will also examine your appliances to determine if they are costing you money by using excess energy.
Once our inspection is complete, we will put together a customized energy report that includes recommendations on areas that you can improve. We will spell out how much each improvement might cost and how much money you can expect to save on energy costs by making these changes. That way, you will have everything you need to make an informed decision—from diagnostics to return on investment information. Our goal is to show you which improvements will pay for themselves and make it as easy as possible to get started.
How should I prepare for my home energy audit?
Most people think about doing a home energy audit because they have specific concerns about energy efficiency. Perhaps you feel your energy costs are too high compared to a friend or neighbor. Or, maybe you just purchased the home, and you’d like to know if making improvements or upgrades is a good idea for you. Whatever the reason, let us know. When we know what you specifically want to get out of your home energy audit, we can tailor our services even more to get you answers.
Knowing behavior patterns in your home can also be helpful. We may ask for information regarding:
- How many people live in your home
- Whether there are people at the house all day, or periods where everyone is out
- The average thermostat setting for both summer and winter
- Whether you use all areas of the home regularly
- Whether anyone in the home has allergies, asthma, or any other breathing conditions
Last, it can help to track down the last few months of energy bills. The easiest way to do this is to go to your online statements and either print them out or save a copy for us. Having a 12-month history of your energy usage will help us evaluate your biggest energy drains and get you the best recommendations.
How do I know if I need a home energy audit?
Generally speaking, if you’ve never had an energy audit, it’s a good idea to get one done, even if you don’t have any specific concerns. You may have been throwing money away for years without even realizing it. In fact, most homeowners are.
But the biggest reason people get a home energy audit is that they know something is off about the heating or cooling in their home. They can tell that one part of the house is very cool and comfortable while another part is hot, for example. Or they may simply feel that their energy bills are higher than they should be. This is a situation where an energy audit can not only help you save money, but prevent years of frustration wondering what the problem is.
Other homeowners already know that they want to rein in energy costs, but they’re wondering whether the investment will really pay for itself. We can point you to the improvements with the biggest return.
Some of the most common reasons that homeowners get energy audits include:
- Their energy bills seem too high
- They have recently purchased a home
- They are considering a large remodel
- They are selling their home and want to showcase that the home is energy efficient
- They have an older home that may need to be updated
- They are considering updating a major appliance, such as a furnace or air conditioning unit
- They notice that some rooms are simply not comfortable no matter what they do
Whatever your concern, Ambient Edge can help you address it.
