Free Home Energy Audits
There is no singular “best way” to conserve energy in the homes of South Jersey. It will depend on a variety of factors, including the age and type of your home, the amount and type of insulation, the total air leakage, the type of heating, cooling, and water heating equipment in your home, and your comfort needs. Two seemingly identical homes could have drastically different energy usage profiles, so the first step to determine how we can help you conserve is a free energy assessment (or energy audit).
Bovio’s is one of the foremost experts in residential energy conservation in South Jersey. We had the 2nd most energy conservation completions in New Jersey, and are in the top 30 in the Nation, earning EPA Century Club Awards in 2010 and 2012! Here is what you can expect from our award-winning energy audits.
How the Bovio Energy Audit Works
Think of an energy audit as a full scan of how your home is performing, from the basement to the roof, and into every nook and cranny of your South Jersey home. Our energy audit includes:
- Evaluation of insulation levels in walls, ceilings, and floors
- Identifying areas where air leakage could be present, using a blower door
- Evaluation of furnace for efficiency level and safe operation
- Evaluation of water heater for efficiency level and safe operation
- Inspection of air conditioner for efficiency level
- Locate any moisture/air quality issues
- Inspection of exhaust fans and dryer for proper operation and venting
- Locate any inefficient or unsafe lighting or appliances
After Your Energy Audit
Once we have gathered all of this information, we will then analyze it to see where you have the most potential to save energy, while also keeping the health and safety of the occupants in mind. We model your home’s energy usage in a computer modeling system endorsed by the state of New Jersey, to determine how much you could save on your energy bills. This computer model will be based on your actual utility bills and your home’s actual size, insulation levels, air leakage, and mechanical systems.
We will prioritize what improvements you should make based on the comfort concerns you have and the energy savings that can be achieved, and provide you with options as to what would be best for you and your family. We may recommend some of the following upgrades:
- Furnace replacement or repair
- AC replacement or repair
- Insulation upgrades & air sealing
- Duct cleaning
- Ductless mini split installation
Your home is a unique eco-system, and changing one aspect of that system can have an effect on the entire home—we take these recommendations very seriously!
Plus, if you decide to move ahead with a comprehensive energy conservation project that is modeled to save enough energy to qualify for the New Jersey Clean Energy Program’s Home Performance with Energy STAR Program, you could be eligible for up to $4,000 in rebates and 7 year, 0% financing!
