5 Reasons Fall Is the Perfect Time for an Energy Audit

We spend a lot of time educating homeowners here on Long Island about the benefits of energy audits, and for good reason. Though it’s a new service to many homeowners, an energy audit is one of the best ways you can enhance the comfort, health, and energy efficiency of your home. This important assessment by a home performance specialist reveals where inefficiencies are in your home and points you to smart solutions that will conserve energy and improve its overall comfort and safety.

If you haven’t yet scheduled an energy audit for your home, now is the time. Here’s why.

Beat the Winter Rush for Retrofit Work

Outside temperatures may feel comfortable now, but in a month or two, every homeowner on Long Island is going to be looking for ways to keep the cold out of their homes. By scheduling an energy audit now, you’re getting the early scoop on what your home needs for greater indoor comfort and energy efficiency all winter. Plus, you’ll have more time to schedule any needed retrofit work before winter hits!

Start Lowering Your Energy Bills Now

Still reeling from the summer’s high energy bills? You can expect equally high bills this winter—or even higher bills if you heat your home with oil. A fall energy audit will uncover simple ways to improve your home to keep those energy bills down, such as sealing air leaks or installing new insulation. Then when you make these improvements during the fall season, you’ll enjoy lower energy bills that much sooner.

Seal Air Leaks Before They Become Cold Drafts

Air sealing is one of the most common energy efficiency upgrades we recommend after an energy audit. This because many homes have air leaks which allow air to travel freely in and out. Valuable heated air escapes all winter, creating space for cold outside air to rush in.

An energy audit reveals exactly where air leaks are in your home so a weatherization expert like Green Team LI can seal those leaks for good, preventing winter drafts.

Make Your Home Cozier with Insulation

Our energy audits also often reveal gaps in insulation. Insulation is essential for keeping valuable heat inside your home and stabilizing indoor temperatures all winter. With your audit report from Green Team LI in hand, you’ll be prepared to have our professionals install new insulation in your home as needed.

Optimize Your Heating System for Winter

Finally, an energy audit can help you assess the safety of your heating system just in time for winter. It can also help you determine if it’s time to upgrade to a more efficient unit. Your energy audit, for example, might reveal that your system is sending unsafe levels of carbon monoxide into your home, or it might reveal that oil to gas conversion could help you save more on annual heating costs.

Beat the winter rush and improve your home comfort in time for winter. Schedule your fall energy audit today by contacting us or calling 844-370-3322!
