Home Energy Assessment Myths…BUSTED!
By Chiara Favaloro, Marketing Fellow
1. Myth: Home energy assessments are expensive
FALSE: They are available at NO COST to you! Trained professionals from the Center for EcoTechnology and Mass Save conduct each assessment thoroughly and skillfully.
2. Myth: Most homes don’t need weatherization
FALSE: An average home has enough air leakage to add up to a two-foot-square hole. That is like leaving a medium sized window open for 24 hours a day!
3. Myth: Low-flow water fixtures greatly affect water pressure
FALSE: The water pressure is not significantly changed with low-flow water fixtures, yet you will greatly reduce your water consumption.
4. Myth: The savings are small
FALSE: You could save up to 30% on your energy bill by making efficiency upgrades that are suggested by your home energy assessment. Your report will also include applicable rebates and incentives, which could save you 75% up to $2,000.
5. Myth: There aren’t any instant perks
FALSE: During the assessment you receive several instant saving measures to help you save money by reducing your energy consumption. The homeowner typically receives LED light bulbs, power-strips, programmable thermostats, and water saving devices as needed. A home energy assessment will also help you find the best ways to reduce drafts in your home or add insulation.
