Home Energy Audits With Green Step Systems

Sometimes known simply as HVAC, heating, ventilation and air conditioning are extremely important to a home's comfort, efficiency and safety. When we perform an energy audit or assessment on a home, we are looking at how air and heat move throughout the living spaces. When we notice areas that handle your heat or air ineffectively, we recommend measures to help you gain control.

The first step to gaining control is sealing up air leaks and ensuring that insulation is effective across the entire thermal barrier to the outside. Once a home's envelope is sealed and insulated we focus on the mechanical side of things--the home's heating, ventilation and air conditioning.

Who does not want to lower energy costs? Lower energy costs means surplus funds which can be used for other things you want or need. In order for you to lower your energy costs, you need to lower your consumption. Some people argue however that lowering your energy consumption will translate to less comfort for you and for your family. This is not necessarily true. You can lower energy consumption by removing any energy-wasting elements.

In order to find out where your energy usage is going to waste, you need to run a home energy audit. An energy audit is essentially an inspection of how energy flows and is used in a home, taking into consideration factors that can be addressed to improve energy efficiency in cooling and heating.
