Is your home energy efficient?

Did you know that the average home in Kansas City...
  1. Spends about $2000/yr in electric and gas costs AND wastes $940 of that?
  2. Is only half insulated?
  3. Lose over 60% of their heated and air-conditioned air to the outside?
  4. Leaks 33% of air around ductwork?
  5. Uses a tank water heater that is only 55% efficient?
  6. Wastes 11-17% electricity/gas with inefficient appliances?
  7. Have low efficiency lighting, heating, and cooling systems?
About 96% of the homes in our area have these energy problems due to poor or inadequate insulation and the use of minimum builder grade materials and systems.  Before you spend any money to improve your home's energy effiency, consider having a Home Energy Audit.

Home Energy Audits can save you thousands in lower energy costs.  By using state-of-the-art technologies including the blower door leakage testing, infrared camera imaging and more, their findings will help you make the best decisions about which energy improvements you want to make to achieve the maximum payback or result you are looking for.

A Home Energy Audit can save you 22-47% or more in energy costs.  Every $1 saved in utilities can increase your home's resale value by $10. That can add about $8400 to the value of your home!

If you live in the Kansas City area and would like more information (including a coupon for $50 off your energy audit from GreenTech Efficiency Solutions), give me a call at 913-787-1870 or send me an email.
