Have your energy costs been perpetually on the rise? Over the last ten years, the cost of residential electricity prices here in Massachusetts have steadily increased. This is a situation that frustrates many Bay Staters all year long.
So, what does it mean for your overall home performance, and how can you take control of your unpredictable utility bill? Think of this situation as you would a check engine light in your car. If your electricity bill and overall energy usage are rising faster than the uptick in electricity rates, your home is signaling to you that it’s time to take a look under the hood.
If your high energy bills are like a check engine light for your home, a no-cost energy assessment from our home energy experts is like a diagnostic engine test. Our no-cost energy assessment is aimed at diagnosing your home performance issues so that we can create a comprehensive, personalized action plan to get your home performance back in peak condition - and save you money!
Diagnosing Your Home Performance Issues
Here at Mass Energy Experts, the two most common questions we get are “What can I expect with an energy assessment?” and “How is it going to save me on my energy bills?” In short, what you can expect from Mass Energy Experts is a thorough test of your home performance from top to bottom. This includes visual inspections and the use of home performance diagnostic tools to accurately measure each of the following:
Crawlspace or basement
Interior wall insulation
Heating and cooling equipment
Safety of all combustion appliances
Now we know what you may be thinking — how can testing my attic or basement save energy? The insights that we gain from testing your overall home performance will help outline a clear path to energy efficiency, one that is customized based on the results of each individual home energy assessment.
