There are so many reasons to get an energy assessment, most of which you’ve probably never even heard of and it’s a good time to consider getting one. Energy assessments are also referred to as “energy audits” and are becoming more popular with home owners, home builders, and renters. Not only do energy audits point to areas where a home’s energy efficiency could be improved, but it could greatly impact many more of your investment decisions including renovations and renewable energy.

Here are 5 reasons to get an energy assessment:

You’re thinking about adding solar energy. Why get solar energy if your home is just going to leak all that investment right out the door or windows, attic or elsewhere? Getting an assessment and following up on fixing any issues will help you recoup your solar energy investment all that much faster.

Your home is being marketed as “green” But is it really green? Sometimes homes are marketed as “energy efficient” without much proof of their level of energy efficiency. An energy assessment can shed some light on the validity of that “green” claim.



You want to save money on utility bills. By understanding where energy is being lost, you can address it head on with sometimes very simple and cost effective fixes. This is  great for renters who may be able to make inexpensive and temporary changes, like weather stripping, to the property which will reduce their utility bill.
