Why It Pays To Get A Home Energy Evaluation

Why It Pays To Get A Home Energy Evaluation Detroit, Michigan As the cost of energy continues to skyrocket, it is more important than ever to be aware of your energy usage. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, you can save from 5-30 percent on your energy bill by upgrading your home to fix problems that lead to a waste of energy, such as leaky insulation or outdated appliances that are not energy-efficient.

The majority of your utility bills are generated by your heating and cooling equipment.  How often this equipment operates is directly related to how efficient your home is at holding the temperature within it.  Therefore, a good way to manage and control the bulk of your energy usage is by better understanding how your home or office gains heat in the summer and loses heat in the winter.

This can be done by conducting a home energy evaluation (sometimes referred to as a “Manual J Calculation”).  This will pinpoint how your home or office gains/loses heat; indicate areas for improvement; and also identify the correct size of the heating and cooling equipment needed to maintain your desired comfort level.  A properly-sized heating and cooling system can save you hundreds of dollars off of your energy bills!

A professional can perform a thorough evaluation of your home and provide you with a detailed report of the issues found. With this report in hand, you can assess all of the recommendations and tackle the tasks that are within your budget.
