How $150 Can Help Make Your Home More Energy Efficient

If you’ve been thinking about making your home more energy efficient, but have been worried about the price tag, you may be surprised to learn that it’s much more affordable than you think. Simply put, Benton Green Energy can show you how you’re wasting energy at home and how to stop doing it. We’re passionate about helping you save money. To prove that, we’re introducing the $150 home energy audit. This service will include a blower door test, a duct leakage test and an efficiency test on a heat pump or air conditioning unit, as well as a summary of a home or building’s “baseline” energy usage (lighting, refrigeration, water heating).

The results will do two things. First, it will put a dollar amount on how much “inefficiency” is costing you. For example, if you have an old heat pump, we’ll show you much money you are you losing each year by sticking with the one you have. Second, the results will determine the cost effectiveness of making your home or business more energy efficient. It outlines the return on your investment.

We will still offer our more expensive comprehensive energy audits, which include thermal and digital imaging and a Home Energy Rating System (HERS) rating on the home, for people who want those services. But offering energy auditing and home performance contracting services at a price everyone can afford is why we’re in business.

Our experience has shown that air sealing, duct sealing and efficiency upgrades on heating and cooling systems will almost always resolve comfort issues and reduce utility bills substantially. These services pay for themselves in as little as two years. By offering an energy audit for a reduced amount of $150, we hope more people like you will take the first step toward making your home more comfortable and more energy efficient, while ultimately saving money for your family.
