Energy auditing experts, Pro Energy Consultants, say thorough energy auditing can protect homeowners from high utility bills.
Online PR News – 29-December-2010 – – CLEVELAND - As winter continues, Pro Energy Consultants reminds homeowners that enlisting the help of a professional energy auditing company can make the difference when it comes to energy bills and overall home warmth. Pro Energy Consultants specializes in assessing a home’s energy consumption. The company also suggests measures to make a home more energy efficient.
“Reducing drafts can make a frigid winter bearable, but it’s not always so simple,” said Derek Sola, managing partner at Pro Energy Consultants. “The Pro Energy Consultants team provides unique expertise by using blower door and infrared camera technology to spot energy inefficiencies that could otherwise be overlooked. Our energy audits help find air leaks hidden behind walls and in ceilings.”
During an audit, a blower door is installed in an exterior door frame and acts as a giant fan to pull air through the home, revealing possible leaks. Common problem areas include around windows, where bad caulking can cause drafts. Uncovered fireplaces can funnel heat up a chimney and out of the home.
Pro Energy Consultants can provide an itemized list of similar energy loss issues as part of the home energy audit process. Suggestions could range from installing an easy-to-use, programmable thermostat, to planting trees and shrubs in strategic locations to block painful winds from chilling a home.
According to Pro Energy Consultants, a home energy audit typically takes two or three hours.
“Without the help of a professional energy auditor, homeowners can be forced to simply guess at the problem,” Sola said. “We want to make sure your family keeps warm and that Old Man Winter doesn’t creep into your home unexpectedly.”
