Residential Energy Audits
How energy efficient is your home? Do you suffer from high bills? Do you feel drafts inside your home or do rooms stay too cold or too hot? If you answered ‘yes’ to these questions, it’s time to consider a FREE energy audit from one of Sawnee EMC’s Energy Service Representatives. A representative will come to your home, perform a visual inspection, and recommend ways to improve your home’s efficiency.
The following areas are inspected when an energy audit is performed:
- Duct sealing
- Insulation level
- Areas of air infiltration (windows, doors, basement walls, etc.)
- Ventilation in the attic
- Positioning of supply and return vents throughout the home
- Estimations on heating and cooling costs
- Breakdown of cost/usage on certain equipment/appliances
Based on what the home may need, you may be eligible for rebates and incentives for increasing the efficiency of your home. Call Sawnee EMC’s Customer Service Center at (770) 887-2363 to request this free service, or request it online.
Do-It-Yourself Energy Audit Video
If you are interested in the audit service but just can’t find the time, we offer a Do-It-Yourself Home Energy Checkup video. This informative videotape takes you step-by-step through a house and shows you the areas that may need to be upgraded.
If you are interested in this program, please call Sawnee EMC’s Customer Service Center at (770) 887-2363 to request the video, or you can also request it online.
The Do-It-Yourself Checklist can be used with the video to rate your home’s current energy efficiency. The checklist also includes Sawnee EMC’s rebates for home improvements.
