Home Energy Audit = Affordable Comfort

Posted: September 16th, 2014 by Brad

Most homes built prior to 1980 had very little insulation. In Seattle, about two thirds of the city’s housing stock was built prior to World War I. Such homes could likely be more comfortable and affordable to keep warm, especially during the cooler, wetter winter months.

Building science offers effective, proven ways to upgrade both new and old homes for improved comfort as well as cost savings. Projects that bring an older home’s insulation and air tightness up to speed with current standards typically cost around $10,000. Government and utility rebate programs vary, and currently cover about 10- to 50-percent of these costs.

Every home is unique. A home energy audit provides you with the smartest, most cost-effective strategies for improving your home’s performance. According to WalletHub, a personal finance social media network, energy costs take about seven percent of the average consumer’s total income.

Seattle City Light customers can enjoy a rebate for 62% of the cost for this service. For more information, or to schedule a comprehensive, in-home evaluation, contact:
