Benefits of Home Energy Audits

A home energy audit can help make your home more efficient. It is often the first step in a starting the process of saving money through energy efficiency. A home energy audit can help show areas where your home needs work and provide you with many benefits. If you have already noticed issues in your home, such as drafty rooms or condensation on your windows, an energy audit can help determine the cause. Even if you haven’t noticed any issues at home, you will find reasons why a home energy audit makes sense. Western States Home Services is happy to provide you with solutions to all your home energy audit needs!

Energy Bill Savings

An audit will show where you can save money on your energy bills and help you prioritize fixes that will give you the most ROI. Within a short amount of time, a home energy audit can help pay for itself with your energy bill savings.

Stay More Comfortable

By being more energy efficient, you should be able to feel the difference in the comfort of your home. Whether it’s adding insulation or replacing the air conditioning, using the suggestions from the home energy audit will help you stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Improve the Home’s Marketability and Resale Value

Homebuyers are starting to look more about the home’s operating costs when buying a home. With decreasing energy costs, your home value will go up and you will find that your home will likely sell faster and for a higher price.

Discover Hidden Problems

Since the audit involves a pretty thorough inspection of the home, you can notice any safety problems before they become an even bigger problem. Improper ventilation can lead to mildew and mold growth, and without an audit it’s possible the problem wouldn’t have been discovered until the mold was already damaging to your health. With an audit, you can find improper ventilation and other issues before having to shell out more money for bigger problems.

Government Incentives

A home audit can show you energy efficient areas of your home where you may be able to take advantage of government rebates. You don’t need to do the audit in order to take advantage of the rebate, but it can show you areas where you may not even think to check for energy inefficiencies. You can then have the government help you pay for it.

Help Save the Earth

By having a more efficient home, you can help do your part to protect the environment by reducing pollution and greenhouse gases.
