5 Reasons Winter Is the Perfect Time for an Energy Audit

Temperatures dipped below 20°F this past week, and for many local homeowners, it was a stark reminder that winters on Long Island can be brutal. As you look for ways to stay warm and cozy this season, we wanted to remind you of the number-one way to make your home more comfortable: scheduling a home energy audit with Green Team LI. When you have our team conduct a home energy audit, you gain access to valuable and accurate information about your home, including which improvements to prioritize for maximum comfort and energy savings.

Still on the fence about getting an energy assessment done on your home? Here are five reasons winter is the perfect time to schedule one.

It’s Going to Get Colder

We may have had a mild start to winter, but forecasts are predicting a chilly and snowy second half of the season. Is your house ready to take on winter in full force?

Getting an energy audit now can help you understand how to make your home more resilient against the winter cold. We might, for example, recommend air sealing and cellulose insulation to keep valuable heat inside your living spaces. Or, we might recommend converting from an oil to a gas heating system to help keep those energy bills down. As the weather gets colder, it’s nice to know which home upgrade will make the biggest impact on your indoor comfort.

Comfort Issues Are Amplified in the Winter

Winter has a way of amplifying the inefficiencies in our homes. Maybe, for example, your hardwood floors become ice cold when temperatures dip below freezing. Or, maybe your living room becomes notoriously hard to heat during the winter. Scheduling an energy audit when these issues come to the surface gives you the opportunity to talk to a home efficiency expert who can help you uncover the root causes.

Energy Prices Are Going Up

If you’re seeing higher energy bills this winter than in previous winters, you’re not alone. Many homeowners here on Long Island are seeing higher energy bills with every year. Investing in energy efficient home upgrades allows you to consume less energy in the first place and is a surefire way to protect yourself from rising energy costs.

Start Saving on Your Energy Bills Now

Another reason to invest in energy efficiency? When you follow the recommendations given in your home energy audit report, you can start enjoying lower energy bills immediately — a perk that proves especially valuable during the winter season. Plus, you can expect those energy bill savings to last for years to come.

Prepare Your Home for Summer, Too

Here’s what you may not know about the issues making your home uncomfortably cold in the winter: they’re probably making your home uncomfortably hot in the summer too! Lack of insulation, for example, allows valuable heat to escape in the winter and unwanted heat to enter in the summer. Meanwhile, leaky ductwork wastes valuable energy and drives up your utility bills year-round.

For a home that is comfortable, energy efficient, and healthy not just in the winter but year-round, it pays to schedule an energy audit with your local home efficiency experts.
