It’s estimated that the average American family spends $2,060 per year in energy costs alone. However, much of this money is needlessly spent due to such deficiencies as problems with windows, under-insulation, defective or an inefficient furnaces or heaters, a host of other problems, or a combination of all or some these. The only way to effectively identify and eventually eliminate this is through a comprehensive residential electrical audit. In Hagerstown and the surrounding areas in MD, PA, and WV, nobody does these audits better than ALC Weaver Electric.
What Exactly Is a Residential Electrical Audit?
Simply put, a residential electrical audit, also referred to as a home energy audit, consists of a thorough room-by-room assessment of your home. The audit will help you understand exactly how much energy your home is using and where, as well as pinpoint problem areas where your home is losing energy. During the audit, you will be advised of the recommended fixes needed to correct the identified problem areas and how you should prioritize to make your home more energy-efficient and comfortable for your family.
Does a Residential Electrical Audit Really Help Save Money?
The audit is the first, single most important step in reducing your home’s energy bill for years to come.
In a Washington Post article published last year, Ely Jacobsohn, a U.S. Department of Energy employee who manages the Home Performance With Energy Star program, explained, “Audits are important for homeowners because they provide solutions based on proven building science. They find the root cause of problems, rather than just treating symptoms.”
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that homeowners can save 5 to 30 percent in home energy costs simply by implementing the efficiency upgrades identified in the audit. Moreover, the audit helps ensure the safety and health of your home.
