If you aim to reduce operating costs, decline wear and tear of HVAC equipment, longer life span, and a better environment to make things work correctly and efficiently, then you got your answer. Performing an HVAC audit offers a chance to examine your HVAC system’s energy needs and pinpoint potential trouble spots by analyzing energy where the HVAC system receives the heaviest use, or the lightest or where it might be losing energy. Assessment of how well the HVAC system is doing is vital. In short, conduct a component-by-component examination of your HVAC system’s health and get the most out of minimizing energy loss and maximizing the system’s efficiency.
A typical energy audit would include a complete evaluation of your:
- Home or company’s insulation and air flow measurements
- Energy spending habits
- Ductwork and indoor/outdoor unit inspections, etc.
Depending on the results of the energy audit, the following steps may also be required:
- Adding, updating, or replacing air quality equipment
- Sealing of ducts and minor leaks found in doors or windows
- Installation of blown-in insulations
- Tidying ductworks
HVAC audit for homes can be done by the owner using the right tools. Although this audit will not be as good and thorough just like what professionals do, homeowners can conduct simple but diligent home energy audit and spot problems where their home is losing most energy. A do-it-yourself home energy audit is the best way to help determine where you can also save energy. Basic things such as changing filters on time can help save electricity.If you observed that your do-it-yourself audit didn’t help lower the cost of your bills or energy consumption a month or two after the audit is done, consider calling in an air conditioning repair and maintenance expert.
