Springtime is the Best time to Get Your Energy Assessment

Spring is here! The days get longer, the weather is warming up and it’s time for deep cleaning. It’s also an excellent time to get a free energy assessment! During the spring, your energy costs typically decrease and your energy costs are not top of mind. With a free energy assessment, you will get a report that details the energy losses and potential energy savings you can achieve with energy efficient updates. In addition, the report will identify rebates that are available with certain updates. They can be as simple as weather stripping to a complete upgrade of your heating and cooling system.


Heating professionals are typically very busy over the winter months. If you need to make any updates to your heating/cooling equipment, their schedule should be more accommodating during the spring and you may also find a financial incentive due to the slow time of year for their business.


You’ll be ahead of the warm summer months. With your energy assessment report, you’ll know where air is leaking out of your home. Should you need to make your home more air tight to keep in the cool air, you’ll be ready to go by the time to the real heat arrives.


Your energy audit report is good for five years. If you need to make any updates prior to winter or an emergency comes up within five years of your report, you will still be eligible to receive incentive rebates for your energy saving projects. You also have time to plan your project and work with your energy company to ensure your equipment meets energy efficiency guidelines for the rebate.


Energy efficient updates will also increase the value of your home. If you are looking to sell your home over the summer or in the near future, this would help make your home more attractive than similar homes for sale in your area. It gives your buyers peace of mind with their purchase.
