What Is an Energy Audit?

An energy audit is essentially a close examination of your home, looking for anything that might end up costing you more in monthly energy bills. Such issues can include the following:

  • A lack of insulation in outside walls or the attic of the Boise home.
  • Cracks around outside doors or window frames.
  • The amount of sunlight exposure on the western side.
  • The presence of older appliances which might require more energy to run.
  • A lack of double–paned windows.
  • The presence of appliances such as fireplaces, which may contribute to heating or cooling without much cost.

What are the Benefits?

The benefits of an energy audit come in knowing exactly how to combat energy inefficiency in your home and exactly where the trouble spots lie. With that knowledge, you and your service technician can plan exactly how to seal those leaks and improve your home’s energy recovery abilities dramatically. That can reduce your monthly bills a great deal, depending on the circumstances: freeing up money in your household budget and helping keep your home comfortable without costing you an arm and a leg. It can also reduce strain on your heating and air conditioning system and help them to last longer.

In some cases, it can be simple to address the issues. In others, more extensive steps may be required, such as adding insulation or replacing your old heating system with a new one. But with our trained professionals on your side, you can be assured of getting the most accurate information every time.
