An Energy Audit Can Help You Save Money
Free home energy audits are available to all South Central Electric members. A home energy audit will help you evaluate the energy efficiency of your home and the ways you use energy. It's designed to highlight some important areas where energy conservation and management measures can be implemented.
Energy usage in a typical home depends on its condition, the size of your family and your lifestyle.
Energy is mainly lost in two ways: by conduction and infiltration. Conduction is energy lost by transmission - directly through the outside surfaces (walls, windows, ceiling, floors and roofs). Infiltration is energy lost by unconditioned air coming in and conditioned air going out. This occurs through leaks around windows, cracks in the wall or up the fireplace chimney, to name a few.
We suggest the following ideas to start reducing energy loss; reduce air infiltration by caulking and weather-stripping doors, windows and other openings; adding attic insulation; installing storm windows and doors; and tuning up your heating/air conditioning system.
