3 Signs You Need an Energy Audit, Alexandria, Virginia

Now that cold weather is officially here to stay, Virginia homeowners are running their heating systems more often than usual. With this increased energy use, it’s wise to have an audit done to ensure your home is operating at optimum efficiency. An energy audit is one of the best ways for homeowners to learn how to reduce consumption and save money on their utility bills each month.

When Do You Need an Energy Audit?

1. You Have Higher Bills Than Your Neighbors

Have you noticed that you are paying significantly more each month in energy costs than your neighbors? Your home is likely the same age and size of the others in your neighborhood, meaning, if your consumption rates are similar, your energy costs should be roughly the same. A higher monthly bill might mean that your energy efficiency could use some improvements.

2. Temperatures Fluctuate From Room to Room

3. Your System & Appliances Always Seem to Be Running

If your dehumidifier or furnace never seems to turn off, you are using more energy than you should. Your home’s HVAC system doesn’t need to work overtime to keep you comfortable, and it might be trying to overcompensate for escaping air or extreme moisture levels.
