According to a study conducted by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, the average American household spends about $2,060 every year on energy costs. These energy costs include the heat for your home, the power you use for your appliances, your lighting and more. To ensure you’re being efficient with your energy spending, you should perform a home energy audit.
Though you can do it on your own, it’s still best to ask for a professional’s help. All Angles Covered, one of the most experienced commercial and residential roofing contractors in Colorado, discusses in this article what you can expect during a home energy audit.
The energy auditor usually begins their assessment with your home’s exterior. The auditor will look at your property from the outside. They will inspect different elements, including eaves, windows, walls, even the roof. This is to determine if there are issues causing leaks into or out of your home.
All Angles Covered offers financing roof repair if the auditor finds that your roof is not up to par as far as energy efficiency goes.
The energy auditor will also check all of your appliances, from your washer and dryer to refrigerator and television. They will examine each appliance according to its age, condition, and efficiency. The auditors will also check your HVAC units and ducts to confirm if you are using the appropriate system for the size of your home and if the ducts are positioned properly into the units.
The energy auditor will also perform a blower door test. This test checks of any possible air leaks at your home. While they’re at it, the auditor will also check the insulation you have for your attic, basement, and crawl space. In some cases, auditors may also remove an outlet cover to also check the condition of your walls.
