Winter is a wonderful time of the year for a great many things. It’s a good time to spend with friends and family indoors binge-watching TV shows on Netflix, or just cozying up to a warm fire, etc. In fact, it’s cold out and we know you’ll be doing a lot more indoor activities. Therefore, these reasons and more are precisely why winter is the best time to schedule your complimentary Home Energy Audit with Health & Safety Inspection with Hutchinson Plumbing Heating Cooling.
Here are also some other reasons why you may want to schedule an energy audit for your NJ or PA home:
Because it’s so cold outside and we’re spending more of our time indoors, the quality of the air inside our homes becomes even more important. That’s why one of the major components of your Home Energy Audit is the Health & Safety Inspection. During the Health & Safety Inspection, our technicians will look for things such as mold, mildew, and asbestos, as well as other contaminants which may affect your respiratory health and/or cause any other issues which may lead to damage to your home, such as fire.
Another major component of the Home Energy Audit is the use of IR cameras to identify areas with poor insulation or areas where air is leaking into, or out of, the home. The IR camera works by taking a “picture of temperatures” throughout your home and by showing areas of your home that are warmer or cooler. These photos allow for a better analysis of the issues in your home.
Another reason to schedule your Home Energy Audit with Health & Safety Inspection is, again, “it’s cold out!” How cold? 50% of your utility bill cold! On average, homeowners in New Jersey will pay about 50% of their yearly utility bill to heat their homes. While most homeowners are shocked by their air conditioning bills, it’s important to keep in mind that summer is only two to three months long, while winter drags on for the better part of six months. So, that’s a lot more bills and a lot more money! The sooner you can start saving, the better!
The final reason to schedule your Home Energy Audit with Health & Safety Inspection this winter is to . . . get ready for summer! While the energy savings in the summer tend not to be as great during the winter, a Home Energy Audit can help to identify many causes of your COMFORT issues in the summer. Most homeowners in New Jersey are struggling to cool their 2nd floors in the summer, and most struggle with humidity in their homes in the summer. A Home Energy Audit with Health & Safety Inspection can identify the causes of these problems and create plans to permanently fix them.
