Worried about Having Effective Winter Heating? Schedule an Energy Audit!

It’s officially fall, and while our days are still pretty warm here in Hendersonville, NC, our nights are hitting the 50s and for some, the 40s. We’re at that time of year where it’s not quite heating season, but we are certainly preparing for it, and one of the best ways to make sure you won’t suffer from poor energy efficiency is to schedule an energy audit. The professionals at Comfort Central, Inc., can perform a home performance assessment, aka, a home energy audit, to help pinpoint any areas where you may be losing warm air.

What’s Involved with an Energy Audit?

There are five main aspects to a home energy audit:

  • Inspection – the inspection process involves a number of tasks, including thorough reviews of your heating and cooling systems and major appliances. We’ll also review the last 12 months of utility bills for your home and have you answer a number of specific questions regarding your home. We’ll also take a look at the major systems, like the electrical and plumbing.
  • Testing – there are several key tests involved with the home energy audit process. These tests are designed to pinpoint the exact location of problems as well as the types of problems your home may have (i.e., air loss).
  • Analysis – Once the inspection and testing are completed, our technician will analyze all of the data and information that has been gathered to create a full picture of what is happening in your home.
  • Results – you will receive an in-depth report detailing our findings.
  • Recommendations – within the report you’ll find specific recommendations about how to remedy any problems found during the audit process.

Only trained and certified indoor air quality specialists should perform an energy audit on your home. This ensures that all testing and analysis will be done correctly so that you have the answers and solutions you need to all of your energy efficiency issues.
