What exactly is an Energy Audit and why would I want one?
A home energy audit is a service where the energy efficiency of a house is evaluated by a person using professional equipment see the wiki.
Simply put, an Energy Audit(assessment) is an in-depth overview of your home’s energy performance, and what can be done to improve it. We take a “whole house approach” when looking at your home, meaning we don’t just look at the individual parts, but how they coexist and function together. This is important for energy savings plans , proper hvac sizing, and health/safety. For example, an over-sized air conditioner can cost up to 25% more to operate because the house cools too fast and the unit is not able to dehumidify. So before your next upgrade make sure you have an Energy Audit performed. Most areas in Kansas City and surrounding have programs available that pay for MOST OR ALL of the cost of the audit.
