Energy Audit versus Estimate?!

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014 by John Kotsides


Any time a client comes to us looking for an estimate we like to ask questions. Why do we ask questions...so that we can help guide potential customers in a direction that we feel will most benefit them in what they are hoping to achieve and educate them on programs they may be eligible for. While customers may be calling for a particular improvement...we generally recommend in most cases an energy audit which includes a comprehensive report using diagnostic equipment to evaluate what is really going on in the home and how we can help them to achieve their goals in the most economical way. Because we at Global Dwelling specialize in building science, we realize that each home is unique with it's own unique situations. And not every problem has the same solution.

Home energy audits are generally free in New York State to families with income levels under $140k and we are happy to walk our customers through the process step by step as we know it can sometimes seem daunting. 

Another reason to utilize home energy audits is that New York State offers residents the availability to finance qualifying energy efficient upgrades at extrememly low rates and/or benefit from the State's 10% Incentive Rebate. Two great more reasons to utilize what the State has to offer. 

If you are looking to make your home more energy efficient or just more comfortable for your family to live in, now is the time to do it! It is an investment that pays for itself. Even if you are paying out of pocket, the 10% rebate is still available for qualifying upgrades.

How do improvements pay for themselves? Let's say we can reduce your usage right from the start, the difference in those savings immediately start paying you back for the improvements made. Depending on the upgrades, within several years the investment will have paid for itself...all the while you have reduced your usage and are living more comfortably. No more agonizing over being uncomfortably chilly or too hot...and now you're saving money too!.

Sometimes a simple estimate is all you need BUT if you'd like to make the smartest investment in your home, we highly suggest getting a home energy audit before you make any lasting decisions! Call us today at 845-256-0019 for a free estimate.
