Even homeowners who think their home is generally efficient are often surprised to learn just how much more efficient their home could be. Here’s the bottom line: your home is probably wasting a lot of your home every single month. With a spring energy audit from the BPI-certified experts here at Allbritten, you can put your home (and your wallet) on the road to significant summer energy savings.
Why schedule a spring energy audit?
#1. Identify areas where you can save money
Every homeowner wants to find ways to put a little more back into their wallet each month. A home energy audit is a great way to identify the “low-hanging fruit” that can yield immediate, permanent savings. For example, the audit might point out that cooled air is escaping through cracks around the window frame. About 20 cents of caulk later, and you’re on the road to summer savings. Here’s the bottom line: an audit is worth the upfront cost because it yields monthly savings for years to come.
#2. Boost your home’s value
A home energy audit can help you lift your home’s efficiency, which in itself is a great boost to your value. However, the audit may also identify other places where you can make high return-on-investment moves. For example, more and more homeowners are switching out their older manual thermostats for smart, programmable ones. These help you save money and stay comfortable! Similarly, a home energy audit can identify which of your older appliances are energy hogs, and which ones you should target to replace first.
#3. Take advantage of rebates and incentives
Both the federal government, the state of California, and many utilities here in Fresno offer rebates and incentives to homeowners who make their homes more energy-efficient. Be sure to check out the Energy Upgrade California program offered by Pacific Gas & Electric. You may find that making your home energy-efficient costs a lot less than you initially thought!
#4. Get more out of your air conditioner
By reducing the amount of cooling your home needs to be comfortable, a home energy audit can also reduce the cooling burden on your air conditioner over the summer. That means lower energy bills, reduced risk of a breakdown, and a longer system lifespan. Pair those benefits with those of our seasonal AC tune-up service, and you and your air conditioner will be set for a perfect summer.
