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!

Courteous, professional and honest. Those are rare quality to find nowadays with service field people. Unlike today, most ac & heating people were trained to sell products for commission incentives, that help promote corruption and corrode honesty.read more

This is the best company I've ever worked with for any service at my home. My air went out on a day the high was over 120. I called and told Jamie that I didn't know if I needs a new system or a repair. She sent Jason who was awesome. He knows the repair and installation side of things. He brought parts and a temporary unit to cool the house until they could get back to do the install of the new system. Jason and Victor have been out several times to make sure everything was perfect throughout the house. A drywall company was lined up as well to fix the attic entrance. Larson Air was always a step ahead. Jamie and Jason were efficient and coordinated things the way they'd want it done at their own homes. Because of the stellar reviews online I waited to call Larson Air during their hours vs calling an emergency company during the night. I'm glad I did! I didn't comparison shop, I feel like their pricing is average, but the service can't be beat. I'll pay for service every time. Thank you all so much! I've passed your info along to my realtor friends and neighbors in the area.UPDATE:A year and a half later, still AMAZING! I called because I have been so cold downstairs at home. They scheduled someone to come out the same day. He was running early and I was not home yet. I spoke with Jamie several times that day and she was so accommodating with her schedule. She told me not to worry and to just give her a call when I was on my way home, because I was running late by that point. They're great and it was an easy fix.read more

I couldn't be happier I chose Larson Air. Everyone I came in contact with was friendly and courteous. It is very apparent the owners and employees care about their customers and providing excellent service while also remaining reasonably priced and straight forward. The process of replacing my unit was very smooth there were no issues and they were somehow very quiet while doing so, it was not as nearly as loud as I expected. They finished quicker then quoted and they triple check their work making sure everything is working perfectly that day as well as coming back a few days later. I couldn't be more pleased. Great company, great service!read more

After being jacked around by 3 other of the larger competitors in the valley, I called Larson Air. Despite taking my frustrations out on the young lady who answered my call, every one of the team members I interacted with were very professional, knowledgeable, PROMPT!, and thorough in their explanations. Their prices are very fair and quality of work was very good. They even text a picture of the tech who will be showing up so you know who's supposed to be there! Love these folks, highly recommend, and will most definitely use them again and again!!read more
