energy auditsWhen you hear about someone being audited, what do you think of? You probably aren’t thinking about how smart that person is for being audited! While having your taxes audited, you probably aren’t going to feel like it was a worthwhile experience. However, volunteering for an energy audit is a great way to ensure you’re being as energy efficient as possible, and you will actually feel good about the end results.

Simply put, energy audits exist to ensure that your building is as efficient as possible with the energy being used. A thorough energy audit will look at where your energy is being used most and least effectively, and then give you ideas on how to maximize efficiency. You can get ideas on how to properly divert airflow to keep occupied buildings comfortable while also maintaining efficiency. Not only will this keep your occupied buildings at a comfortable temperature, but it will save you money on utilities as well.

Aside from saving money on utility bills, energy audits have some other benefits. Energy audits can sometimes qualify for additional tax breaks or rebates, further saving you money. Additionally, knowing that your home or office space has had a recent energy audit can make it more appealing to future buyers as a real estate purchase.

If you are tired of drafts, high energy bills, being constantly chilly or would like to reduce your carbon footprint as much as possible, an energy audit from Belanger Engineering is the right choice for you. Contact us today for more information about this voluntary audit!
