The Truth About Best Energy Audits

If you and your family are planning to remodel or renovate your home think about the improvements you can make. The same applies if you have a business. Cosmetic changes and updates are not the only matters you should be considering when you decide to renovate. You should also consider this as an opportunity to examine the energy efficiency of your structure and related items. To accomplish this in Arizona is simple. Talk to those companies that perform energy audits in Phoenix. They can do one alone or, the better option, combine it with other related services.

Why Energy Audits?

There are many reasons why you should consider an energy audit for your home or business. The most common reason for energy audits is, however, to save money. An energy audit will find areas where energy is “leaking” out of your home or business. It will look at such things as your windows, insulation, water heater, furnace and even appliances. By finding areas where you are wasting energy or using it inefficiently, you can cut down on overall expense for electricity, gas or other related fuel and energy costs. Yet, this will not happen unless you hire an energy auditor or, to be more precise, a qualified energy auditor.

Benefits from Energy Audits

Having an energy audit can result in benefits for you and your family. It can also cut down on the cost of doing business. As noted above, energy audits are, for many, a cost reduction or saving matter. Yet, there are other benefits. These include:

  • Reducing use of a non-renewable source
  • Being environmentally more friendly
  • Preventing possible damage to your home from moisture problems and other harms resulting from leakage or improperly operating appliances
  • Sometimes qualifying for a rebate or reduction due to your energy saving measures

Finding a Trained Energy Auditor

Energy efficiency audits in Phoenix and across Arizona need to be handled by an experienced and qualified energy auditor. He or she needs to be certified by the appropriate state authorities to conduct the audit. Make sure you see the certification. Talk to the Better Business Bureau (BBB) about the company’s record. Failure to do so can easily result in a failed opportunity to take advantage of renovations to improve the overall energy usage. At worst, it means you will be overcharged for a service and pay more for cost-cutting, energy saving measures that are either not required or will not do the job.
