Energy Audit on a Two Year Old Home?Is it beneficial to have an energy audit performed on my two year old home?
Home built after 2005 are typically more energy efficient due to improved code requirements and construction practices. In most cases the older the home is, the greater the potential savings. As homes age, they offer an increasing number of opportunities for energy savings. If homes built before 2000 used as little energy per square foot as newer homes, residential energy consumption would drop by more than 22 percent. It is possible you might require duct sealing, and in a typical home nearly 20 percent of the air that moves through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected ducts.
