Energy Audits

Are you hoping that your energy bills will go down? Hoping won’t do it, but taking action will. There has never been a better time to lower your energy bills. Why is now a great time to take action? The government is actively involved in motivating you to make your home more energy efficient. There are many tax credits available for specific home improvements that will reduce energy demand. The federal government has set aside much more money for similar projects. How do you get started? Call us! We will perform an energy audit to determine where in your home you can invest your money and get the most for your investment. What is an energy audit? First we measure your home and determine the square footage, the cubic footage, the “conditioned space,” and we factor in the number of openings. We also take into account the “unconditioned space” that can drain heat and cooling from your conditioned area gobbling up your heating and cooling dollars. We then take a look at your appliances, their age and their efficiency. Next we look at the building materials in hour home and the insulation that is present. We take all these factors and plug them into a highly sophisticated program that prepares a custom made report that addresses your home! The report will outline what improvements will pay the highest return. It takes these improvements and factors them against general contracting rates and will show you in dollars and cents how much you will pay and how much those investments will save you. The report gives you specific time tables as to how soon these investments become FREE by the money they saved you!

The really nice thing about this report is it gives you a plan. You can then take the items that will save you the most money, get you the best tax advantage, and start on them right away. Maybe you are handy and want to do some yourself. It will advise you what products will qualify for tax credits. Some of these items you may be able to do yourself. Why keep pouring money into energy when you can reduce your energy use and have the government provide you with tax credits for doing it. It is a win/win situation. If your house were a boat, and it was leaking water everyday, would you let it keep leaking if you could fix those leaks and save money doing it? Stop drowning in energy bills. Call us. The service is competitively priced. Remember, this is an investment, not an expense.
