The first step in understanding the amount of energy that your home loses is to conduct an energy audit of your home.
The energy audit/assessment will locate air leaks and verify the proper level of insulation for your home. The most common origin of energy loss is the result of air leaks in cracks around windows and doors, gaps along baseboard, mail chutes, cracks in brick, siding, stucco or foundation. Energy loss is also found where any external lines, such as phone, cable, electric and gas enter the home.
A professional home energy audit gives you a detailed example of where your home is losing energy and most importantly, what you can do to save money. If you are a Charlotte homeowner, we can help you save between 5%-30% on energy bill by making improvements following a home energy assessment.
