Summer is sadly coming to an end, which means it will the temperatures will be dropping outside in the coming months. As we get into fall, you will begin to rely more on your heater. However, you want to ensure you are not letting the heat slip through any leaks in your home, wasting energy and money.

If you want to save energy, you first need to find out exactly where in your home you are wasting energy. High Performance Homes offers a $100 home energy audit for qualified BGE customer and accesses where you are exactly losing energy in your home. The process includes a door blower test and safety testing of your appliances. You will get a detailed report about every area that needs to be improved and we will offers solutions. After we install the recommended solution, we will test it to make sure it is working properly.
Seal Air Leaks
Many times tiny air leaks in your pipes and around your doors and windows are the many causes of energy loss in your home. After an energy audit, you will know exactly where the leaks are in your home. If you have leaks around your windows and doors, the common solution will be to add caulking or weather-stripping. Depending on the age and condition of your window, vinyl windows might be the best solution because they have the best insulation on the market.
Focus On Your Heating System
You want to make sure your heating system, whether it is a furnace or a heating pump, is working properly, especially during the winter. During your energy audit, you will discover if your current heating system is effective and what alterations need to be made. If you have a furnace or heat pump, make sure you are changing the filter every month or so.
