An energy audit for your house or home is the first step to making sure your home heating and air systems are running as efficiently as possible. The purpose of the audit is to identify any problems that, once corrected, will save you significant amounts of money over time. Not only can a home energy audit save money, but it can also make your property more comfortable while being environmentally friendly to boot. If you’re tired of wasting money and resources, it’s time to have an energy audit from Affordable Air & Heat here in Cape Coral, FL and surrounding areas.
While the cost of energy auditing in Cape Coral, FL, and nearby areas can vary based on the size of the property, Affordable Air & Heat generally charges $125. More important than the cost, however, are the savings made possible by the audit. The energy audit will not only tell you how much energy and money your property is wasting, but also how to fix the problem and make your space as energy-efficient as possible, saving you money in the long run.
Again, this can vary based on the size of the property, but energy audits can take anywhere from 1-2 hours. The auditor will examine the outside of the building to determine the square footage and number of windows and exterior doors. They will then come inside and go room-by-room, inspecting doors, windows, and vents.
Before the auditor visits your home, be sure to make a list of all the problems you are aware of. These can include rooms that are always hotter or colder than any other room in the structure and rooms that tend to be more humid than other rooms. Moisture control can be a very valuable tool in regulating energy usage, especially here in Cape Coral, FL, where high humidity is always a concern. It is also extremely important that you have copies or a summary of the building’s yearly energy bills. You can get these from the utility provider. Finally, the auditor will have a few questions to make sure they have a thorough understanding of the day-to-day energy usage:
