Home Energy Audit Fireplaces, Attics and More

Home Energy Audit Fireplaces, Attics and More.

The purpose of a home energy audit is to make your house more energy efficient. An energy efficient house is going to result in reduced utility expenses now, and for many years to come. Depending upon the size of your utility bill, auditing your house can save you thousands, or 10s of thousands of dollars over the years. While windows and doors are obvious energy waste areas, there are less evident areas where you can lose a great deal of heat.

Attics in a house are a terrific place to keep your junk and valuable stuff. That attic, however, can be costing you big bucks. While most attics have insulation, they also have open-air vents to maintain circulation. Failing to circulate air in the attic can destroy roofing and the things in the attic.

Luckily, the ceiling of your house has insulation to keep energy from escaping up through it into the attic. Still, most people defeat this insulation by failing to have a look at the entrance to the attic. If you have the proverbial hole in the ceiling entrance to the attic, just how much heat or cooling is escaping through the spaces surrounding it into and out of the attic vents? Placing temporary seals around the edges of the entrance can instantly cut your heating or cooling expenses by 25 percent.

Fireplaces provide an entire host of problems when it concerns controling the temperature in a house. By definition, a fireplace is developed to move smoke out of a house using the rising heat as a method of propulsion. The issue, obviously, is when you aren't utilizing the fireplace, it still carries the hot air from your house.

The first step in dealing with a fireplace is to make sure the flue is closed when not being used. If you leave it open, you may as well shut off the heat in your house due to the fact that the heat is going to come out of your vents, cross the room and blow up and out of the fireplace. Clearly, that is a utility bill horror story.

Energy audits are a must if you hope to combat increasing energy expenses. Luckily, good sense steps can save you a lot of money.Go To Their Website\nTucson Heating And Cooling
