Answers:

What is the scientific assessment of your home’s systems and how well they work together to keep your home comfortable, healthy and energy efficient?

A. Home energy audit

When conducting a home energy audit, we examine every component of your home using a variety of techniques and tools to assess home performance (including a blower door test, infrared imaging and combustion safety testing) so you’ll know precisely how your home uses and loses energy and the most effective upgrades you can make to improve it.

Which of these help you conserve energy, save money and increase your home’s comfort?

D. Air sealing and insulation

Stop wearing your down jacket inside! Air sealing and insulation together will greatly increase energy efficiency, lower monthly bills and make your home more comfy for the whole family.

Mold, dampness, rodents and bugs, high energy bills, foul odors and heightened allergies or asthma symptoms are all signs of  _________.

B. A crawl space problem

A neglected crawl space can cause all these problems. Crawl space encapsulation ensures healthier indoor air quality, greater year-round comfort, increased home energy efficiency and lower bills.

Signs that you may need an insulation upgrade in your attic include:

B. Difficulty heating and cooling your house
C. High energy bills
D. Cold drafts in winter

Attic insulation will help keep your whole house at more comfortable temperatures, lower your energy bills and help stop those cold drafts in winter. The strange sounds coming from your attic are another story...

Which of these is not true about installing a new heating and cooling system in your home?

D. A bigger furnace is always better

When it comes to furnaces, bigger is not always better. In fact, a smaller furnace could be a more energy-efficient choice for your home. The rest of these statements are true.

Which of these could help you pay less for heating and cooling your home all year long?

A. A home energy audit
B. Insulation and air sealing
D. Mini-split installation

While all of these options could help with your heating and cooling bills, we think you’ll find it far more effective (and much easier) to call Green Homes for an energy audit, insulation and air sealing or to talk about mini-split installation in your home.
