An Energy Audit Can Save You Energy and Money
August 16th, 2018 by Allie Foster, Marketing and Communications Manager
The word “audit” can seem very scary to some people. Most of the time, an audit means that someone is coming in to poke around your stuff just to find out what you’re doing wrong. Then, they always seem to want your money in order to fix what they have found.
However, at MEC, we look at audits a little differently. Our home energy audit program is available to our membership as an improvement tool. By auditing your energy use, you can find areas of your home where you can improve on your energy efficiency, and save some money as well!
MEC employs certified personnel that are trained to conduct a thorough energy audit of your home, which is designed to discover any gaps in your home’s efficiency. Our energy efficiency team performs an air infiltration test using a blower door system, as well as a thermal imaging camera. This test is designed to reveal any sources of air infiltration or lack of insulation. After the audit, you will have a much better understanding of energy efficiency practices and you will be given a descriptive list of recommendations determined just for your home!
The initial cost of an energy audit from MEC is $100. However, you will be given the opportunity to get that money back by simply participating in any of the recommendations that are outlined for your residence.
But wait, there’s more!... MEC can pay for 50% of the improvements you make, up to $500! Therefore, you can recoup some of your investment, all while cutting your energy costs!
In conclusion, an audit doesn’t have to be scary at all! With MEC’s home energy audit program, we are here to help you save money on your energy costs!
