The team at Andrew DiPietro’s Climate Zone know that having an energy efficient home is important to our customers. It’s important to us as well. A great way to determine where your home is losing energy and where you can save money is by scheduling a home energy assessment. So what exactly is a home energy assessment?

Here in the Haverhill area you can receive a free, energy assessment through Mass Save. During their home energy assessment an energy auditor will do a room-by-room inspection of your home, including the outside of your home. You will want to accompany them during their inspection to answer any questions they may have while inspecting your home. The inspection takes anywhere from 1.5-2.5 hours. You should expect that the energy auditor will also want to look over your past utility bills.

Your home energy assessment will cover the three main parts of your home’s energy usage. They will take a look at your thermal layers, which are things like your walls, windows and insulation. Another part is your mechanical systems such as: water heater, furnace and air conditioner. And lastly, they will assess your consumer products, including your lightbulbs, washer and dryer, and other home appliances.

Your energy assessor will take a whole-home approach and make recommendations for you along the way. You will be left with an energy saving plan that will fit both your home and your lifestyle. Along with your energy plan you’ll also been told all of the applicable rebates and incentives for improving your home’s energy efficiency.
