Spring is here, and temperatures are on the rise in Phoenix, AZ. Therefore, your energy costs will also start to increase. What if we you could lower them instead? A home performance evaluation is the first step toward lowering your monthly energy bill.
What’s a Home Performance Evaluation?
A home performance evaluation is a series of inspections and tests designed to ferret out inefficiencies in your home’s thermal pocket. It’ll tell you where you’re losing energy through leaks or insufficient insulation and what you can do to solve the problem. It’ll also test your HVAC system to make sure it’s set up properly for your home and the environmental conditions in your neighborhood.
As homes age, insulation becomes less capable and seams widen into cracks. These changes allow thermal energy to leak through your walls undetected. Our thermal scanners can see the signs of these problems and allow us to suggest what you need to do to stop the loss.
Pressure and load testing your HVAC system will reveal problems that may have existed since your home was first built. Improperly sized systems and unbalanced air pressures cause your system to work harder than it should. A well-balanced system runs less frequently and is more effective and less costly to run.
Increased Home Value
Following our recommendations to get improved performance of your HVAC system can increase the value of your home. Buyers are willing to pay more for an efficiently designed home that uses less energy. Investing in improving your system now will not only lower your own bills but raise your selling price in the future.
