Save energy and money with a experience home Inspector
Did you know that the typical U.S. family spends about $2,200 a year on their home’s utility bills?
Unfortunately, a large portion of that energy is wasted. And each year, electricity generated by fossil fuels for a single home puts more carbon dioxide into the air than two average cars. The good news is that there is a lot you can do to save energy and money at home.
The key to achieving these savings in the home is a whole-house energy-efficiency plan. To take a whole-house approach, view the home as an energy system with interdependent parts. For example, the heating system is not just a furnace—it’s a heat-delivery system that starts at the furnace and delivers heat throughout the home using a network of ducts. Even a top-of-the-line, energy-efficient furnace will waste a lot of fuel if the ducts, walls, attic, windows, and doors are not properly sealed and insulated. Taking a whole-house approach to saving energy ensures that the dollars you invest to save energy are spent wisely.
Energy-efficient improvements not only make the home more comfortable, but they can also yield long-term financial rewards. Reduced utility bills more than make up for the higher price of energy-efficient appliances and improvements over their lifetimes. In addition, the home could bring in a higher price when you sell.
