Summer is sadly coming to an end, which means the temperatures will be dropping and winter is not too far ahead. Now is the time to prepare your home for the cold.
Get an Energy Audit
If you want to save energy, you first need to find out exactly where in your home you are wasting energy. High Performance Home offers a $100 home energy audit for qualified BGE and Potomac Edison customers that will find exactly where you are wasting energy in your home. The process takes a whole house approach looking at all the systems related to energy efficiency, comfort, health, and safety. A blower door test and thermal imaging are performed on all of our assessments. You will get a detailed report about every area that needs to be improved along with cost effective solutions and potential rebate amounts.
Seal Air Leaks
Air leakage is a major cause of energy loss and comfort issues. Leakage let’s conditioned air escape, and unconditioned outside air in. After an energy audit, you will know exactly where the leaks are in your home and what needs to be done to correct them. Air leakage from conditioned space to your attic, leakage around windows and doors are all checked.
Focus On Your Heating System
You want to make sure your heating system is working properly, whether it is a furnace or a heat pump, before cold weather hits. 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.
