Ever since you moved to Mount Pleasant, Texas, you’ve made it a priority to care for your HVAC system. As a result, you keep up with regular maintenance and try not to push your heater too hard. While these are certainly great practices, there’s more you can do to preserve your HVAC system. A home performance evaluation will identify areas of energy loss, so you can improve your system’s energy efficiency.
What Is a Home Performance Evaluation?
Home performance evaluations, also known as home energy audits, use expertise and careful analysis to discern areas of your home where you may be losing energy. HVAC service technicians inspect insulation, doors, windows and more aspects of your home that may be sources of air leakage and consequent energy loss.
In addition to inspecting physical factors in the home, service technicians will also analyze your utility bills. They will also evaluate how you consume energy to see if your actions are contributing to energy loss.
How a Home Performance Evaluation Will Benefit Your System
It’s difficult to resolve a problem that you don’t know exists. Home performance evaluations narrow down the causes of high utility costs and unnecessary HVAC strain so you can begin repairs and maintenance. Those causes force the system to work harder than it should, which further reduces energy efficiency and system lifespan.
By identifying causes of strain on the system, evaluations will help you maximize the its lifespan and prevent a surprise shutdown. And since evaluations also analyze your habits, you can use them to build a more energy-efficient lifestyle.
