1. Schedule a Home Energy Audit
A home energy audit assesses how the various components of your home interact and how much energy it consumes. Having an energy audit performed on your home will provide you with recommendations for the unique improvements you can make to increase energy efficiency and therefore utility bill savings, in addition to increasing comfort and health.
2. Improve Air Sealing & Insulation
Insufficient air sealing and insulation can cause serious problems with energy efficiency, comfort and health within your home. Air sealing and then further improving your home with high-performance cellulose or spray foam insulation offers a healthy place to live, a comfortable environment to spend time with family and friends, and an effective way to reduce your home’s energy usage, therefore decreasing your monthly utility bills.
3. Focus on Indoor Air Quality
Indoor air quality (IAQ) has a great influence on the health of you and your family. You should regularly be checking your home’s carbon monoxide detectors, in addition to being vigilant about any signs of mildew or mold growth. Also, you need to commit to using your bathroom vent fans and stove range hood to help preserve your home’s indoor air quality.
On top of regularly taking steps to ensure your home’s IAQ isn’t endangered, you should schedule indoor air quality testing and consider investing in an air purifier to further reduce the chances of indoor air pollution buildup.
4. HVAC Maintenance
Regularly servicing your home’s heating and cooling systems is essential to their proper function. HVAC maintenance will help to prevent unexpected breakdowns that can result in expensive repairs. It will also assist in increasing the efficiency of your furnace, boiler, heat pump or air conditioner so you can more easily get comfortable, year-round. Air filter replacements will ensure your home’s air quality isn’t affected by a dirty or clogged filter.
