Save Money on Energy Bills with a Free Energy Assessment: Here’s How
By now, most Massachusetts homeowners are aware of the home energy savings that are available through Mass Save® and the Inflation Reduction Act. But some still have questions, and at Revise, Inc., one of the best questions we get is about how to save money.
Getting the savings that best fit your situation as a homeowner involves understanding all of the answers to your questions. You need to get the right information, then use it to make the best possible decisions about your home energy situation. See how you can do that with a free energy assessment.
The Home Energy Assessment Increases Your Home Comfort and Starts the Savings Flowing
Regardless of what your budget is and what level of savings you’re looking for, the home energy assessment is the starting point for any process. At Revise, Inc., we’ve done hundreds of these assessments, and we can tell you that you will benefit you.
A Home Energy Assessment is Free, and There are No Unwanted Calls
Some homeowners think there’s a catch when they sign up for a home energy assessment, but that is not true. The assessment costs nothing, but it can unlock hundreds and even thousands of home energy saving possibilities that you may not even know you had.
A Home Energy Audit is Comprehensive.
If you’ve always wondered about what your level of home energy efficiency is, a home energy assessment from a company like Revise, Inc. is a great way to find out. It costs you nothing, and you get every aspect of your home evaluated for energy efficiency.
You Get a Report with Recommendations
Sometimes a comprehensive inspection can seem confusing. So much of your home is covered during the inspection that sometimes it can be difficult to see the forest for the trees when it comes to savings.
Our home energy assessors will give you a report that’s succinct, and it will feature products and recommendations that are tailored for your.
What Gets Covered in a Mass Energy Assessment
Now let’s look at what your home energy assessor will cover and discuss with you during the home energy assessment. We’ll start with the basics and the smaller savings that come with them, then move up to the larger pieces of equipment and the technology you can use to maximize both your savings and your home energy efficiency.
Before we dive into all that, it’s important to mention that we’re licensed contractors under the Mass Save® program. That means we know what to look for when it comes to doing a thorough home inspection, and we know the right products that will fit your budget.
We’re also highly trained service professionals. We know that what matters most is that you get what you want, and we’re not coming into your home to try to upsell you on expensive home energy technology. You get to make the decisions, and we make the recommendations accordingly.
Air Leaks and Insulation
The savings start with a look at the structure of your home. Our home energy assessors begin searching for air leaks, which can occur in your walls, in the eaves where your walls meet your foundation, and at the base of your home where the foundation ends and your walls begin.
Those air leaks can be costing you a lot of money without you knowing it, but our home energy assessors will pinpoint them for you, then tell you what’s involved in getting them fixed.
They may recommend specific contractors who are also part of the Mass Save® program, and some or all of the work these contractors do for you may end up being free.
Insulation Can Save Money and Reduce Cost
Now let’s talk about your insulation. You may not have thought about it for years, but our home energy assessors think about it all the time.
They do more than think, too. They’re aware of the rating numbers that pertain to your home insulation, and they can tell you where you’re at numerically and whether you need to do an upgrade to better, more modern insulation.
All of that information will be in their report, and having it all available in a single source will help you consolidate your savings.
Insulation technology has grown in leaps and bounds in the last decade or so, and you may be surprised by how much money you save with a simple upgrade in your home insulation.
Windows and Doors
Believe it or not, your doors and windows can be a tremendous source of potential savings, particularly if you haven’t replaced or upgraded them in a long time.
Triple pane windows can save you a lot of money, and Mass Save® offers major discounts on these items. A blower door test may help reveal that your door insulation is inadequate, and Mass Save® offers great discounts there, too.
Older appliances tend to be at least somewhat inefficient, and buying newer ones that are more energy efficient can save you a great deal of money, especially if you add on a Mass Save® discount.
Furnaces, Boilers, Water Heater and Heat Pumps
If you have an older HVAC system, you can definitely save money with a modern furnace or boiler. You can also future-proof your home with a heat pump, which will maximize your home energy efficiency and pay for itself over time.
