A home energy assessment, or energy audit, is a way for the experts at Bardi to determine where your home is losing energy and how your home can become more energy efficient. Listed below are some of the several benefits of having a Bardi energy assessment performed on your home.
- Save money.
- Since energy audits help homeowners discover areas where their homes are wasting energy and using it inefficiently, fixing the problems can result in utility bills decreasing. By making the necessary repairs, homeowners can see a decrease in their energy bills anywhere from 5% to 30% annually.
- Uncover hidden problems within your home.
- Energy audits reveal the unseen problems your home is facing. While a leaky window or door may be easy to detect, these assessments can bring to light other problems within your home that you were previously unaware of. These unseen problems can include improper ventilation which can lead to mold or mildew.
- Help the environment.
- In today’s environmentally friendly world, being green is more important than ever. 16% of the greenhouse gases generated in the U.S. come from residential homes. Having proper insulation, fixing air leakage, replacing old appliances with energy efficient ones and using less energy for heating and air are several ways homeowners can reduce their impact on the environment.
