YES! Energy audits are worth it in Florida! If you don’t already know what an energy audit is, it is the process of evaluating energy consumption in your home and identifying ways to make it more energy-efficient. The benefits include saving money on energy costs, reducing environmental impact, improving comfort levels in your home with better insulation or air conditioning systems, and being fast and free. It’s time for you to take control of your family’s energy efficiency needs.
Are energy bills taking a toll on your wallet? If you live in Florida, you know the weather stays pretty warm most months of the year. You may feel like your cooling system is consistently humming. If so, you might want to consider conducting an energy audit.
What Happens During a Home Energy Audit?
Since Florida is one of the warmest states, it’s important to see where you can save money, prevent wasting energy, and improve the efficiency of your home. Energy analysts can come to your home and conduct a thorough examination, look for ways to improve energy efficiency, update your old systems to energy-saving products, and search for air leakage by inspecting your home’s windows and doors. The energy auditors will use a Home Energy Audit Report to provide you with recommended steps towards lower energy bills.
Benefits of a Home Energy Assessment
There are many energy audit benefits, including the potential to save money and reduce your environmental footprint. You may even receive some tax incentives or qualify for some rebates!
Save money on monthly utility bills (less energy loss).
An in-home audit can save you money and reduce energy costs because the energy experts will find ways to improve efficiency, such as approved insulation improvements, air sealing, or updating your cooling system.
It’s more costly to cool a home that is not energy-efficient. Between air leaks or lack of insulation, your systems will have to work harder to fight the inefficiencies. How many Energy Star certified products do you have in your house? When you replace drafty single-pane windows with Energy Star replacements, you can save $100-$500 per year in energy costs. If those savings are just from windows, think how much more you can save on monthly energy costs in your living room, bedroom, and kitchen!
Reduce your environmental impact and increase energy efficiency.
Home energy use accounts for over 80% of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States, so we must do what we can to lessen our carbon footprint. An in-home audit helps us find ways to cut down on energy usage and improve overall home performance, resulting in less energy use.
If you live in an older home with older heating and cooling systems, a home energy assessment will help identify energy improvements by upgrading these items.
Improve comfort levels and reduce energy usage.
When energy experts come into your house, they will go through every room, looking at how well-insulated each area is. Different rooms have varying temperature needs; one might need better insulation than the other.
They also look at your heating and cooling systems because energy savings can be found by updating an old system or adding a space heater. Not to mention that energy analysis reports will provide you with detailed information on how well-insulated each room is as well as what type of qualifying energy-efficient heating/cooling units you should update.
