Home Energy Audits Tinley Park, IL And All Surrounding Chicago Suburbs
For more than 27 years, the team at Climate Master Mechanical Contractors, Inc. has been working to help our customers in the Chicagoland area maintain cool, comfortable, and energy efficient homes. In most houses, heating and cooling systems represent a big portion of energy consumption, and making adjustments to those systems can have a huge impact on your monthly utility bills. To help our neighbors find out how to make their homes more efficient, we offer full professional home energy audits.
The Home Energy Auditing Process
Before each of our home energy audits, we request that our customers gather information including their utility bills for the last 12 months, the number of residents in the home and the average thermostat setting. The first step in the auditing process is to discuss all of this information and identify ways in which the home is losing energy. Next, our trained technicians thoroughly inspect the home itself, examining walls, doors, windows, insulation, and load-generating appliances. Based on all this information, we create a full report on likely energy leaks and explain every potential issue clearly to the customer.
Building Energy Efficient Homes in Chicagoland
Understanding where the problems lie, however, is just the first part of a home energy audit. Based on the results, our technicians will recommend changes that can improve energy efficiency and, in many cases, make the home more comfortable. Recommendations, such as upgrading to a more efficient air conditioner or heater, may be substantial changes. Others, such as installing a ceiling fan, may be relatively small investments, and some recommendations, such as adjusting the thermostat upward or closing doors and windows to cut off potential energy leaks, cost nothing at all.
For those recommendations that require financial investment, our energy efficiency experts will do a full payback analysis. By weighing the cost of an upgrade against the projected monthly energy savings, we can determine how long it will take for a more efficient system to effectively pay for itself. In most cases, making those changes will help you to save in the long term, leading to better, more reliable climate control at a reduced cost.
