What Is an Electricity Audit?

Electrical audits analyze your home and electricity usage to locate energy inefficiencies and find cost-effective solutions to reduce your overall electrical usage. An electrical audit can also identify possible safety concerns, like overloading or a need for surge protectors to protect against lightning or other power spikes that can cause serious problems. During your electrical audit, the technician evaluates the energy used by appliances, devices, and systems within your home, which shows what consumes the most at any particular time or day. A report is then generated that provides findings and recommendations on how you can reduce inefficiencies and save on your monthly utility costs.

What Are the Benefits?

Identifies Ways to Save Money on Monthly Utilities

During your electrical audit, the electrician will measure your home’s energy consumption. Using this information, they can make suggestions to improve your energy efficiency, which will reduce your electric bill.

Improves Heating and Cooling in Your Home

An energy audit also identifies issues with your home's ability to heat and cool itself, so steps can be taken to resolve those concerns. Common solutions include sealing the space around doors and windows or determining ways to improve insulation. This helps to reduce your utility bills, but also improves your year-round comfort.

Reduces Environmental Impact

Improved energy efficiency also means that your home has less of a negative influence on the environment. An energy audit helps you contribute less to global warming and can lessen your overall carbon footprint.

Increased Resale Value

If you are planning to sell your home, an electrical audit can help to improve its value. The renovations and improvements made to increase energy efficiency also raise the value of your home. Home improvements that increase energy efficiency are some of the only home improvements that truly pay for themselves in the long run.
