AFR Construction is committed to helping you help the environment. A home energy audit is often the first step in making your home more energy efficient. An audit can help you assess how much energy your home uses and evaluate what measures you can take to improve efficiency. An assessment will show you problems that may, when corrected, save you significant amounts of money over time. But remember, audits alone don’t save energy. You need to implement the recommended improvements.
A home energy checkup helps owners determine where their house is losing energy and money – and how such problems can be corrected to make the home more energy efficient. A professional technician — often called an energy auditor — can give your home a checkup. Items shown here include checking for leaks, examining insulation, inspecting the furnace and ductwork, performing a blower door test and using an infrared camera.
