How a Home Energy Audit Could Help You Save

Did you know that spending less and saving more is one of the top 15 most popular New Year’s Resolutions, according to Reader’s Digest? Here’s how running an energy audit on your home can help you meet this resolution in 2018:

Room-by-Room Recommendations

Energy audits are performed by professional energy auditors, like Mister Sparky San Antonio, who are trained to inspect your home and find places where energy-efficient upgrades could help you save money on your bills. These inspections only take a few hours and will provide specific recommendations on ways to improve your home’s efficiency.

For example, energy auditors will look for areas in your home where sealant has degraded or insulation is insufficient, causing air to leak outside. These leaks can occur in places such as doors leading outside, windows and garage doors, which causes your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system to work harder to maintain the temperature inside your home, costing you more money to stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Examining Your Appliances

Energy auditors will also inspect your appliances and look for ways to decrease their energy consumption. This ranges from recommending more energy efficient light bulbs to identifying which devices are using energy even when not in use and advising that they be unplugged. Auditors will also evaluate your larger appliances such as refrigerators, washers, and dryers to see if there are any improvements that can be implemented to make them more efficient.

Energy auditors’ recommendations will be tailored to your specific home and lifestyle to help you save the most money possible on your bills. Call Mister Sparky at 210-549-9991 today to schedule an energy audit and start saving money!
