Energizing Indiana is now offering residential home energy assessments as a smart approach to improve the comfort of Hoosier homes. The assessments can lower energy bills, improve in-home air quality, and increase the value of the home overall.
According to Energizing Indiana, their advisors will guide participants step-by-step through the process to produce long-term, cost-effective energy savings by analyzing energy use and recommending appropriate efficiency measures. Further, they will install several low-cost energy-saving measures, and even assess the heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems to determine if they are operating efficiently. Air duct sealing, insulation levels, and more may also be inspected to evaluate the home’s energy consumption and heating and cooling efficiency.
Other measures that may be taken to save energy include replacing traditional incandescent bulbs with efficient CFLs, install low-flow faucet aerators, low-flow shower heads, and water heater insulation wrap on electric heaters.
Once the energy assessment is complete, a comprehensive report will be sent detailing what can be done to start saving energy and make the home more comfortable.
