Prevent Heating Loss With a Home Energy Audit, Fairfield, Pennsylvania

If you're trying to save money on your electricity and heating bills, it pays to conduct a home energy audit. There are many places throughout your home that could be letting in cold drafts or not doing enough to prevent heat loss. Tiptons Electric Heating Air Conditioning Refrigeration & Plumbing of Cochranton, PA, has many helpful tips and tricks for helping you save money on your heating costs this winter.

Here are three ways a home energy audit can prevent the loss of warm indoor air throughout the winter months:

  • Identify Problem Areas: Most auditors conduct a series of tests designed to pinpoint problem areas. A few of these tests include checking for drafts, gas leaks, and carbon monoxide levels. Your heating professional will also inspect ductwork, air infiltration, and humidity and insulation levels.
  • heatingOffer Solutions: Many heating issues are relatively minor and inexpensive to fix. They might be as simple as applying air sealing, draping a specialized blanket over your hot water heater, or cleaning your air conditioning unit. Before tearing out your furnace and replacing it, schedule furnace repair to prolong the working life of your appliance. A trained auditor will help you decide if repairs alone will suffice.
  • Estimate Return on Investment: It might be tempting to upgrade all your windows or buy a new furnace for the sake of energy efficiency. Luckily, a home energy audit will reveal the cost of each fix and how soon they will provide a return on investment. Sometimes, it can take years to pay off a new appliance or a set of windows, while a minor upgrade might provide a return on investment within the next few months.
