Top Reasons to Get an Energy Efficiency Evaluation
You probably have a furnace and an air conditioner and may not know much about them. Getting an energy evaluation seems pretty complicated and not worth it. However, these evaluations are not difficult at all, especially not for the homeowner. Hopefully these reasons can possibly sway your mind about it!
- If you’re a very “green” person, here is another way to display that and go “green.” This evaluation can help you to find where there are leaks of heated or cooled air and you can decided whether you want to move forward with the plan that trained consultant figured out. It is another way to help save the planet.
- There could possibly be less dust and lowered allergy symptoms in your home if your home is sealed off more to help prevent energy leaks.
- It can possibly lengthen your furnace and air conditioner’s life. If you follow through with the consultant’s plan, your duct system will not be losing nearly as much heated or cooled air which means that your furnace or air conditioner doesn’t have to work as hard to heat or cool a home.
- Last but not least, it saves money. The average duct system loses 25-40% of the heated or cooled air. That is quite a lot of air that your utility bills are paying for but you are not receiving. Though correcting your home’s problems may cost to begin with, eventually you will be saving money!
With Christmas on its way, you are probably too busy to consider any of this. However, try to remember to think about it after Christmas, especially when that is when you really want to save your money!
