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!
