Add an Energy Audit to Your To-Do List to Ensure Maximize Home Efficiency


Homeowners who have energy audits performed know exactly where to improve their homes to save energy year-round. These audits offer a precise way of detecting air leaks and thermal losses that increase the need for cooling and heating. They’re performed by licensed auditors or HVAC professionals and provide the starting point for improving energy efficiency.

Efficiency Improvements

Once you know where the air leaks are, they’re easy to seal with caulk, weatherstripping or expanding foam. The audit may include testing the air ducts for leakage, since leaky ductwork reduces home energy efficiency and should be sealed with mastic or metal tape for the best durability.

During energy audits, the team will also check the thermal losses throughout your home. The primary places include windows and the roof. Inefficient windows let heat pass through the glass that could add a significant load to your home’s need for conditioning. Inadequate attic insulation lets heat seep into your home during the summer and out in the winter. Upgrading windows, adding window coverings and improving insulation will cut energy bills year-round.
