After a few bouts of late winter snow, it’s finally time to start thinking about warmer weather and everything that comes along with it — including spring cleaning. Your spring to-do list may include tasks like switching out your wardrobe and deep cleaning the kitchen, but have you thought about how you might make your home on Long Island healthier, more comfortable, and more efficient this spring?
Before you go checking things off of that spring cleaning list, we recommend adding one more important task: scheduling an energy audit for your home.
Why Schedule a Home Energy Audit?
Scheduling a home energy audit gives you the opportunity to uncover and understand the issues that are making your home less comfortable and energy efficient than it could be. Air leaks around your recessed lighting and attic hatch, for example, could be letting conditioned air escape into your attic. Or, gaps in your home’s insulation could be making your second floor uncomfortably hot in the summer. Your audit report will outline any deficiencies your energy auditor discovers, as well as which home upgrades will most effectively resolve these deficiencies.
Here are a few of the benefits you can expect when you schedule an energy audit and follow the recommendations outlined in your audit report:
Enhanced overall indoor comfort
Less need to run HVAC equipment
Greater savings on energy bills
Healthier indoor air quality
Protection from future issues such as ice dams
Spring Is the Perfect Time for an Energy Audit
If you’re ready to learn more about your home and find out which energy efficiency upgrades to prioritize next, spring is the perfect time to schedule your energy audit. By getting your audit done in the spring, you can know exactly which improvements to complete for increased comfort and energy efficiency — before the summer heat arrives.
Plus, many of the upgrades we recommend after our energy audits will help improve indoor air quality (IAQ). This is an especially valuable benefit to consider as we enter peak allergy season. If you or someone in your family suffers from allergies or asthma, don’t wait to schedule your audit!
