Every year when the refreshing cool turns to freezing temperatures, your house becomes an icebox. You sped tons of money trying to keep it warm, but the cold air still seeps in. Where is it coming from and what do you have to do to stop it? Garland Insulating can answer these questions and winterize your home, by sending an expert to your house for a home energy audit (also known as a home energy assessment).
Home Energy Audits
Home energy audits identify where energy improvements can be made through an evaluation of your home’s current insulation and air permeability. Problematic air leaks can pop up in surprising places, so it’s important to get a professional consultation from a contractor who understands home air circulation. When you contact Garland Insulating about improving energy efficiency, a home energy audit consultant will inspect your house, point out problem areas where the greatest energy losses are taking place and suggest improvements that are tailored to your home’s specific needs.
Your Garland Insulating consultant will also provide a written breakdown of your options and the potential return on your investment as part of the home energy audit. The return on your investment calculation takes your home’s air conditioning system, level of insulation and current federal, state and utility incentives into account to give you an accurate picture of your potential savings.
How to Conserve Energy
The plan to improve your home energy efficiency will likely include installing new insulation or weatherization products. Weatherization products are designed to keep outside air and moisture from leaking in. Outside air can enter your house through small openings around window and door frames, or large openings like attic access hatches, utility chaseways for ducts and furr downs.
Minimizing air leakage can reduce heating and cooling costs up to 50% while improving your family’s health and safety. It also improves the life of your air conditioning/heating system since the unit isn’t having to work as hard.
