As people are staying inside at home more often these days, it’s the perfect time to do a home energy audit to help save money and conserve energy. The first step is to find areas and appliances in your house that may be causing energy loss. Good parts to check include house insulation, sealing, sources of ventilation, heating, cooling, electrical equipment, lighting, and checking for air leaks which can be found along baseboards, edge of flooring, junctures on walls/ceilings, windows, and more and then sealing them.
Knowing where a home is losing energy can aid in making changes to fix these issues and save energy and money. It may also be a good idea to get a professional energy audit done in the future.
