Home energy audits are one of the top requested energy services among homeowners in North Carolina. A proper home inspection is the most effective method to assess the efficiency of your HVAC system and improve your home’s overall energy efficiency. The purpose of an audit is to evaluate how much energy is consumed each month and determine what improvements you and your energy services professional can make to lower energy consumption without compromising comfort.

More and more homeowners are choosing to invest in a home energy audit to find out why they spend so much money on their utility bills and learn how they can reduce their expenses while enjoying the same level of comfort. The energy audit helps them to save much more than it costs, resulting in an impressive return on investment.

How Often Should Energy Audits Be Scheduled?

Experts recommend that homes undergo energy audits on a regular basis. Depending on the age and condition of your home construction and its HVAC unit type, you may need to schedule audits every couple of years or when something significant changes with your house such as a new addition or the adding of a sunroom or bonus room. There are several scenarios in which homeowners can save money by undergoing a professional energy audit. These include:

  • Before moving into a new home to assess how well built, insulated and equipped it is.
  • Before selling or renting your home to show the buyers your price is, at least, fair.
  • When the electricity bills are increasing with no apparent reason.
