Energy Costs

Did you know that heating and cooling costs are typically the largest energy expense for homeowners? According to the U.S. Department of Energy, they account for ~48% of a utility bill.

Homeowners can take many steps to conserve energy.  One is an online appliance energy calculator, which can be used to determine how much energy appliances and home electronics are consuming as well as the annual cost of that usage.

Another is a home energy audit, which can show how energy usage problems can be properly corrected. To ensure homeowners have met all required professional and educational prerequisites, it is suggested to use an auditor who has a home energy professional certification

Upgrades following an energy audit can save homeowners money on their utility bill and improve the comfort of living spaces.
