A home energy evaluation (also known as an energy or home audit) is beneﬁcial for old and new houses and helps homeowners determine how and where a house is wasting energy and if the home’s heating, cooling, and electrical systems are efﬁcient. You may not be aware your home is losing energy or where the problems exist, but an energy evaluation makes it easy to pinpoint problem areas and therefore, begin to focus on resolving the energy loss. Homes that are uncomfortable, drafty, continuously running heating and cooling units, or have high energy bills and/or various issues with windows (drafty, warped, condensation, etc.), are good candidates for a home energy evaluation. Home energy evaluations are also a great way to make sure that your home is as environmentally sound as you are environmentally conscious.
A professional home energy audit is the best and most thorough way to determine where and how your home is losing energy and the best ways to save. At CRS Exteriors, our professional home energy evaluation team provides a detailed audit with tools and tests, like blower doors, infrared cameras, efﬁciency meters, and surface thermometers. Our evaluation focuses on common leak locations, including window frames, doorways, walls, ﬁreplace dampers, electrical outlets, mounted air-conditioning units, plumbing ﬁxtures, and attic hatches. We want to help you ﬁnd and resolve air leaks, thereby reducing your energy consumption and dependence.
Resolving home energy waste issues can lead to a more comfortable home, lower energy bills, improved air quality, and among other beneﬁts, a sense of helping the environment. Investing in energy efﬁciency has instant and long-term gratiﬁcation and success. The best part is that our home energy evaluations are free and if you come by our Showrooms or Home Show booths and register for an in-home energy evaluation, you’ll automatically qualify to win a $5000 home improvement project in our 2014 Home Improvement Giveaway drawing!
