As an eco-conscious Mt. Pleasant, Texas, homeowner, you know that energy efficiency starts with your HVAC system. But with so many options to consider, where should you focus your energy-efficient efforts? Find out how a home performance evaluation boosts efficiency and helps you make smart choices throughout your home.
Assess Your Utility Bills
Before scheduling a home performance evaluation, we recommend that you request the last 12 months of utility bills from your provider. Our team can use these to assess periods of particularly high energy consumption. We’ll determine whether you’re using much more or less energy than similar households.
Evaluate Energy Losses
During a home performance evaluation, our team will evaluate your home for areas that contribute to energy loss. This could include leaky doors and windows, insulation, the attic and basement, and other areas. Finding the sources of energy loss is just part of the problem, but understanding where your home is losing energy is an important component of our home energy audits.
Recommend Energy-Efficient Upgrades
Once we’ve evaluated your home and your family’s typical usage patterns, we’re better able to recommend energy-efficient upgrades for your HVAC system. These may be simple DIY changes, such as weather-proofing doors and window frames. Or you might add extra insulation in the attic or basement.
Depending on your family’s energy consumption and efficiency goals, we may recommend replacing your old thermostat with a smart model. If your HVAC system is more than a decade old, we may also recommend a new energy-efficient model that can increase your energy savings even more. No matter the results of your home energy audit, we’ll help you make energy-efficient changes that work for your budget.
