How efficient is your home? Could your home be more efficient and help you save money if you took certain steps? A home energy assessment is a great way to figure out exactly how efficient your home and its major systems are, so you can make informed decisions about improving efficiency and making your home a more comfortable place to live.

What Every Home Energy Assessment Includes

During your home energy assessment, a member of our team will thoroughly inspect all of your home’s major systems, including your insulation, water heater, and HVAC system. As we do the inspection, we will perform a few basic tests to acquire more data. We will also use thermal energy to identify where heat is being lost or gained and locate any areas where air could be leaking out of your home and wasting energy.

As a final step during your home energy assessment, we will compile a report that goes over our findings. In this report, we will give every system or aspect of your home a rating on a scale of 1 to 10 based on how well it meets today’s standards for energy efficiency and consumption. We will go over this part with you and then make suggestions about how you can enhance your home’s energy efficiency, so you can make changes that positively impact your home’s utility bills.

We recommend scheduling a home energy assessment after you move into a new home or even after you’ve lived in a home for several years. For more information about our home energy assessments or to schedule an appointment, contact us at PTJ Home Defenders today.
