Home Energy Usage
The first step toward making improvements to your home’s energy efficiency should be to determine exactly where in your home energy is being used. At American Installations we do this by providing our homeowners with a thorough energy assessment. Energy audits are a great way to pinpoint where energy is being lost, used in excess, and what changes can be made to make a home in Massachusetts more energy efficient.
You may think you know where your energy costs are coming from; but you won’t really understand your home’s energy usage without a professional Massachusetts energy assessment. At American Installations, our home energy services include free energy audits that provide our clients with a detailed report of their home energy usage. Most of the energy usage in a typical Massachusetts home comes from space heating, with water heating following at a distant second. All the other parts of your home – from the lights to the kitchen appliances – only take up a fraction of most home energy usage in Massachusetts.
Unfortunately, it’s not as clear cut as improving one aspect of your home to lower the energy consumption your home dedicates to space heating. There may be several factors contributing to your home’s heat loss (and gain), such as drafty windows, poor ventilation, improperly installed air ducts that are not sealed correctly, or just an outdated heating system. With the help of our Massachusetts home energy usage experts, however, and a thorough energy audit, you can make a difference in not only your energy costs, but your energy savings.
