maze Home Energy Audits:

There are hundreds if not thousands of products and strategies that you can purchase and employ to make your home more energy efficient and eco-friendly.  The problem is to decide where you should start first.  Furthermore, many products claim that they can save you hundreds of dollars a year, but how much will they really save you?   How long will it take for your investment in energy conservation products pay for themselves?  A Home Energy Audit is one of the best steps that you can take to plan your journey to a help to determine where and how you spend money on energy and how much each product or strategy will save you.  How much more comfortable will you be once those leaky windows are properly weatherized?  How much is it costing you to not have your attic properly insulated?  How much will you save by switching the bulbs in your porch lamps from incandescent bulbs to compact fluorescents or even LED’s? Where should you turn for a Home Energy Audit?

Online and Do-It-Yourself Audits:

There are numerous free do-it-yourself and online audits available, but they can only return the most basic analysis of your home’s energy consumption and only generic suggestions as to which actions you should take first.  Furthermore, any results indicating how much you will save are typically based on average conditions not on the specific conditions of your house. 

Professional Energy Audits:

There are also many professionals that you can hire to come to you house, some with specialized equipment in order to give a very detailed analysis of the energy usages of your house.  These detailed analyses come with a significant cost of $300 to $500.

The Best of Both:

A third option is a collaborative process between you and a professional.  For a much more reasonable cost of $100 you can receive a do-it-yourself Home Energy Audit Form for you to fill out in the privacy of your home on your own time.  Once you have filled out the form and returned it with your photographs to us, we will:

  1. Contact you, verifying receipt of information.
  2. Review all of your information and contact you if any clarification is needed.
  3.  Use proprietary tools to analyze the information and develop a plan to best meet your budget and energy saving goals.
  4. Send you a detailed plan listing the steps and products needed to meet your goals.  The plan will include a breakdown of your expected savings and estimated pay back period.
  5. We will also suggest several additional products and/or strategies will help you save even more energy and money.
  6. Assist you in implementing the plan that we have proposed.

Together:

Through this process, we will assess the energy efficiency of your house and lifestyle, learn how and where you are spending money on energy, and develop a plan to implement the most cost effective energy saving strategies.  Once these strategies are implemented you will begin to save energy and significantly reduce your utility bills.  Furthermore, your house will be more comfortable to live in.  After the initial savings are realized, we can take that savings and invest it in further energy saving products, and eventually, ideally reduce your energy bills to nothing.
