Home Energy Audit

Home Energy Audits

In the Phoenix desert climate, your home’s HVAC system operates year-round without pause—so finding ways to save on utility bills is a necessity. In fact, the U.S. Energy Department estimates a typical cooling and heating system accounts for 35 to 40 percent of total home energy usage. In an older house with poor insulation and aging ductwork, wasted energy drives utility use far higher. Without improvements like home insulation and duct repair, even the most advanced climate control technology can’t rein in rising energy costs!

What’s the solution for senseless utility waste? Larson’s certified HVAC team recommends Phoenix and Scottsdale homeowners begin with a professional home energy audit to pinpoint and correct areas of greatest energy loss.

Benefits of Larson’s Professional Energy-Use Assessment

A comprehensive energy audit helps homeowners maximize home improvement dollars by prioritizing the most serious causes of energy waste. Upgrading to high-efficiency HVAC equipment can’t deliver expected savings if energy loss goes unchecked. Your home energy audit is a multi-step process that includes a homeowner interview, utility bill analysis, inspection of the home’s interior and exterior, ventilation system testing and lighting inspection.

Once energy inefficiencies are identified, Larson’s team develops a plan for repairing problem areas with lasting, practical energy solutions. Our recommendations help with shortcomings like these:

  • Air infiltration & loss
  • Inadequate insulation
  • Poorly designed ventilation
  • Damaged & leaking ductwork
  • Hot & cold spots that affect comfort
  • Excessive dust in interior air
  • Inefficient lighting
  • Pest problems
  • Allergies & respiratory distress
  • High utility bills
  • Inefficient appliance operation

After making repairs to eliminate excessive energy use, you can be confident future cooling system upgrades will deliver notable savings!

Lyle was awesome and very informative. One thing however was when they called to make my maintenance appointment they... quoted me one price. Larson installed both of my units and they should have that on record. Lyle was surprised to learn that I had 2. The price quoted was only for one. So it was double the cost I was expecting. They should have quoted me at both of them so I knew what to expect. I was a bit blindsided and that affected my budgetread more

Our heating went out. The next day I was able to get a crew out to check the system. Since the compressor was shot and... it would cost nearly $3,000 to repair a 15 year old system I opted to buy a new one. I met with the rep the next day who went over all the options. The day after that the crew arrived and replaced the old unit. They were friendly, thorough & efficient. So after only two days I have a new system. No complaints.read more

I highly recommend Larson Air Conditioning for your routine maintenance. I’m new to AZ, but it’s obvious that it’s... critical to have your AC system maintained properly for a long life and to reduce the chance of issues on a hot day. I’m especially impressed with Ryan as he is completely thorough in his maintenance check. Upon completion he reviews everything and has taken detailed notes along with pictures to show you. Please send Ryan for my next six month maintenance checkup.10 Dec 2019 - recently had Sam do some work to bring both of my furnaces up to code. He is extremely knowledgeable and explain what he was doing as well as some things to keep any eye out for in the future. Thanks for great work Sam!read more

Sam was the technician sent for my service call and I really appreciate that he called prior to his arrival to let me... know he was on his way. He arrived on time and immediately set about his work. He covered his shoes with booties prior to entering my home, which I truly appreciated. Sam was professional, courteous, and personable; I hope I can request him for my next service call. i will definitely be recommending Larson to those I know who may be in need of the services offered. I have already recommended the company this morning to someone I know.read more
