Spring cleaning is a great way to shake off winter’s cobwebs and get your home prepared for warmer weather. Whether you’re decluttering your garage, cleaning out flower beds, or tackling other overdue household repairs, adding a home energy audit to your to-do list is an essential step in your spring cleaning routine.

Spring Is the Right Time for an Energy Audit

Think about it — you’re heating less with warmer weather, but it’s not quite time to turn on the AC. This seasonal pause is the perfect time to improve your home’s heating and cooling efficiency. A home energy audit by the pros at York Home Performance will help you locate issues which may be undermining in your home’s efficiency, such as gaps in insulation and poor indoor air quality.

Some signs that your home may need an energy audit check-up include:

  • Drafty rooms

  • Increased energy consumption

  • Rooms that are too hot or too cold

  • Living areas that are difficult to keep clean

  • Musty odors

  • Constantly running heating or cooling systems

Improve Indoor Air Quality During Allergy Season

Another important aspect to a home energy audit is identifying the places where your Pikesville, PA area home is leaking air. Tiny gaps, cracks, and holes in the walls and ceilings circulate dust, allergens, and other pollutants throughout your home. As part of the energy audit, your energy auditor will conduct a blower door test to pinpoint where these gaps and cracks are located. Air sealing these gaps will improve indoor air quality and help your insulation perform as it should.

Healthy Indoor Air is Important Year-Round

Even if your family doesn’t suffer from seasonal allergies, the York Home Performance energy audit includes important safety testing to ensure your heating and cooling systems are operating properly year-round. Your Maryland or Pennsylvania home will be tested for allergens, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and proper indoor humidity. We’ll test for deadly carbon monoxide that may be seeping from your furnace in amounts too small to be detected by a standard CO monitor. We also recommend testing for radon or mold.

Smart Recommendations to Save Energy & Money

Once the energy audit is complete, we’ll analyze the data and provide a complete report about your home’s health and efficiency. We’ll recommend the upgrade options that make the most sense for improving your home’s energy efficiency, indoor air quality, and comfort.

The sooner you make the updates, the more time you’ll have to enjoy a healthy, comfortable, and energy efficient home. You’ll not only be well prepared for the summer, but for all seasons of the year!

Start your spring cleaning off right with a home energy audit to upgrade your home’s health. Contact us or call (717) 490-3810 today to get started.
