A free Energy Efficiency Audit from EnerWisely can help you analyze your home’s energy usage and save energy and money. You’ll learn how much energy your home is using, when, where, and how. You’ll also see any problem areas where you’re wasting energy and learn how to make simple improvements to use less energy in your home.
Our services help homeowners understand how their house spends energy, proposing solutions to save energy and money.
Put simply, an Energy Efficiency Audit is a review of your home’s energy use. The audit looks at your current and historical energy usage and identifies things you can do to make your home more energy efficient.
Depending on the size of your home, an in-person audit can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars and take several hours. The auditor will examine the inside and outside of your home, paying particular attention to areas where heat or cold air might be escaping. The auditor will also examine your furnace, air conditioner, water heater, and all appliances and electronics for their energy use and efficiency.
At the end of the process, the auditor typically recommends things you can do to cut your energy usage and expenses.
When it comes to energy, the cleanest and cheapest kilowatt is the one that is not wasted. An Energy Efficiency Audit helps you identify those wasted kilowatts and suggests how to become more energy efficient.
Without an Energy Efficiency Audit, you have no way of knowing how much energy you’re wasting, or why. With an audit, you’ll see how your energy usage compares to similar households and where and how you could become more energy efficient. In other words, you will minimize unnecessary energy usage and leaks.
In short, an Energy Efficiency Audit will save you energy and money.
You could spend hundreds of dollars for an in-depth, in-person evaluation of your home’s energy consumption – or you could contact EnerWisely for a 100% free online Energy Efficiency Audit.
There is no cost to receive EnerWisely’s complimentary Energy Audit based on your home’s features, your historical energy consumption data, and your individual behavior.
Here’s how EnerWisely’s free online Energy Audit works.
First, we connect to your home’s meter data. This provides immediate insight into your energy consumption trends – day vs. night, weekday vs. weekend, and so on.
Next, you tell us about your family’s lifestyle – when you wake up and go to sleep, when you leave home and when you return, etc. We’ll use that information to calculate energy leaks or unintentionally wasted electricity and money. We’ll also estimate the environmental impact of your home’s electricity consumption.
Finally, you input information about your home’s key features – age, size, type of heating and cooling systems, and more. EnerWisely will then assess your home’s total energy efficiency.
After the free Energy Efficiency Audit, you’ll receive your personalized dashboard you can access on your computer or mobile device. This will enable you to track your progress and help you take action to cut your home energy bills.
Your dashboard will show you how your home’s energy consumption compares with others in the area. You’ll also get a breakdown of your total energy usage in key categories – air conditioning, heating, laundry, TV and entertainment, lighting, and so forth. You can view these insights as either dollars or kilowatt-hours (KWh).
During this entire process, EnerWisely provides you with valuable tips for saving energy. We’ll show you where and how to save the most energy and the most money.
After you receive the results of your free Energy Efficiency Audit from EnerWisely, you can take action on the items identified. There are lots of things you can do to realize big energy savings, including:
You may also choose to make simple lifestyle changes that can save lots of energy. You can do things like lowering your thermostat at night (during the winter) or raising it by a few degrees (during the summer). You could also install a smart thermostat that adjusts the temperature when you leave a room or aren’t at home.
There’s no point in guessing, however. When you contact EnerWisely for free Energy Efficiency Audit, you’ll find out for sure the specific things you can do to save money in your own home.
