Your Bel Air, MD or York, PA area home’s heating and cooling systems are often at the heart of your home’s efficiency and comfort. As part of our comprehensive home energy audit, your certified building analyst from York Home Performance will review and test your home’s heating and cooling systems. Since we don’t actually sell or install HVAC systems, we can offer an independent assessment of your furnace, boiler, heat pump and central home air conditioner.
How Does an Energy Audit Analyze Heating and Cooling?
The comprehensive energy audit is an opportunity to learn how the components and systems in your home work together. We use proven scientific techniques and trained observations to test for air leakage, poor insulation, gas leak detection and carbon monoxide testing. These last two safety tests will assess the components in your home that burn fuel or use electricity to heat and cool your home. Reviewing these major appliances along with your utility and fuel bills can help us diagnose heating and cooling energy efficiency and identify ways to improve your comfort.
Third-Party HVAC Replacement Recommendations
Because we’re not in the furnace or central home air business, the team at York Home Performance can offer candid advice on your home’s largest — and often most expensive — appliances. We’re not tied to a particular brand and we don’t want to sell you a maintenance agreement.
We can offer an objective assessment of your home’s heating and cooling energy efficiency. We’ll offer some suggestions for HVAC replacement that fit within your energy goals and budget, and because we’re constantly researching energy efficient options, we may be able to spark some new options that can lower your energy costs dramatically.
