The cost of living has increased substantially due to inflation over the past year. As a result, more homeowners in Mathis, TX, are searching for ways to save money without compromising their quality of life. While an upfront cost, scheduling a home energy audit this spring can help you pinpoint where you’re wasting energy and save money.
Start With a DIY Home Energy Audit
There’s no harm in performing your own energy efficiency assessment before calling a professional for assistance. Finding out where you’re wasting energy the most and rectifying the problem can help you save hundreds or even thousands of dollars every year. Here are a few tasks that you can complete during your DIY home energy audit:
- Seal air leaks around your home in windows and doors.
- Replace incandescent lights with energy-efficient LED light bulbs.
- Change the filter in your heater or air conditioner.
Schedule a Professional Audit Afterward
A professional knows exactly where to look to find where you’re wasting and saving the most energy. They will perform a detailed room-by-room inspection, evaluate your energy bills closely and complete a blower door test. They will complete other technical assessments, like a thermographic inspection, air infiltration measurement and air balancing.
