As the owner of a home, you want to learn as much s you can about your residence for a few big reasons. You want your residence to be a place of security, where you are secluded from the harmful weather outside, but you also want to make sure your home is efficient. Energy efficiency has never had as much attention on it as it has in this day and age. The reason is not because we all care for the environment so much, though that certainly is a factor, it is instead because we are all looking for ways to try and save money in our day-to-day lives.
This is where a Jacksonville energy audit comes into play and the many benefits that it can bring to your home. When you are thinking about a Jacksonville energy audit, you have to think about what the audit entails and is all about. A home energy audit conducted by one of our professionals at J&W Heating and Air can help you lean new things about your home that you never knew were an issue in the past. This can lead you home to improved energy efficiency and added security.
The Windows Have Drafts
One of the most common things that we find when we conduct a Jacksonville energy audit is that the windows that you have in your home have drafts. So many homes have aging windows and the reality is that we ignore the problem simply because we do not think it is that big of a deal. When you have older windows, though, the energy waste that they can produce is immense.
The tough thing with older windows is that they are usually just made of one single pane of glass. When you have a single pane of glass such as this what can happen is that the air can just pass right through. This can allow hot or cold air to just works its way right into your home, causing your HVAC system to have to work that much harder across the board. A home Jacksonville energy audit can help you test for this.
Front Door Issues
What about the front door of your home? When was the last time that you actually checked to see how much air was being allowed to just pass right through it? This is exceedingly common when you also do not have a storm door on top of it. We can check your front door as part of our Jacksonville energy audit and help you figure out if that front door is causing you energy losses. These energy losses, similar to the window draft issue, can force your HVAC system to have to put in extra work to get you the results that you are looking for.
An Aging Roof
Do you know what the status of the roof is on top of your home? Are you confident that your roof is going to be able to deliver for you the results you are looking for in terms of keeping the rain and such outside, as well as the exterior air? We can check your roof for you and give you an idea as to what the status of the roof is. Our Jacksonville energy audit can help shed a light on whether or not you have a quality roof, or one that needs some attention.
We at J&W Heating and Air want to help you make sure your home is as efficient as can be. Should we give you results that you can build off of, you hopefully do that to achieve the energy efficiency greatness that you are seeking. This can make your home greener and also save you a lot of money on your energy bills.
