Advanpro Calgary is proud to announce they now offer professional energy audits to help home owners enjoy more efficient and comfortable heating and cooling.
According to independent research, over 90 percent of homes have some kind of air control issue. These issues are often hard for an average homeowner to detect, though they can have a big impact on the comfort and energy efficiency of the home. In response to this fact, Advanpro Calgary is offering comprehensive energy and home performance audits.
An energy audit can reveal the precise causes of home comfort issues such as: excessive dust, dry air, odors, stuffiness, high humidity, uneven temperatures and high utility bills.
The first step of the auditing process is an initial consultation with a trained professional. This consultation provides the opportunity for homeowners to voice any specific concerns they may have about their home comfort or utility bills.
The next step is an equipment inspection. According to Advanpro Calgary, this inspection often reveals improperly sized heating or cooling equipment. When the heater or air conditioner is either too big or too small, it is practically impossible to achieve ideal home comfort or energy efficiency.
Ductwork will also be inspected. Technicians from Advanpro Calgary report that compromised ductwork is often a leading contributor to home comfort problems, because leaky ductwork can not only prevent heated or cooled air from reaching its destination, but also allow dirt, dust, and other contaminants to enter the HVAC system and spread throughout the home.
Homeowners who are struggling with high energy costs will appreciate the fact that every energy audit includes an evaluation of the condition and efficiency of existing insulation. adding extra fiberglass insulation can help control heating costs, while installing radiant barrier foil can help control cooling costs.
An energy audit from Advanpro Calgary also includes an infiltrometer test. This test measures the amount of air that escapes the building seal through the ventilation system as well as through cracks or gaps around doors and windows. When too much air escapes, heating and cooling equipment must work overtime to compensate, resulting in high home energy costs. When too little air escapes, the home can become stuffy, humid, or musty-smelling.
By investing in a whole home energy audit rather than taking a piecemeal approach to home comfort, homeowners can rest assured that all contributing causes of their home comfort issues will get addressed.
