Franzoso Energy AuditsWestchester, Putnam and Fairfield Counties Energy Solutions, Energy Audits

A home energy audit is a comprehensive series of inspections, tests and measurements performed by our BPI-certified (Building Performance Institute) auditors to objectively assess how much energy your home is actually using. It also evaluates indoor air quality and enables the auditor to identify the steps you can then take to improve fuel efficiency, and control energy costs.

Air SealingWestchester, Putnam and Fairfield Counties Energy Solutions, Air Sealing

Cracks, gaps, holes and other openings in the structure of your home are the leading cause of energy waste and high home energy bills. These leaks, usually the result of ill-fitted joints, insufficient insulation, poorly installed windows, doors and other materials used during the construction process, allow drafts and moisture to enter the home year-round, and reduce indoor comfort and efficiency.

InsulationWestchester, Putnam and Fairfield Counties Energy Solutions, Insulation

Inadequate or improperly installed insulation is a continuing and expensive source of energy loss. Typically, the first, and most obvious, place to improve the year-round efficiency and comfort of your home is the attic. But other everyday sources of energy loss can also include basements, crawlspaces, the framing around your windows and doors, as well as your roofing and siding. There are several different types of insulation materials to choose from, and your Franzoso Energy auditor can help you decide which ones will work best for your home.

Air QualityWestchester, Putnam and Fairfield Counties Energy Solutions, Air Quality

In conducting your energy audit, your Franzoso auditor conducts several inspections throughout your home to determine if any indoor air quality issues exist. And, he suggests possible solutions for resolving any air quality issues he may find. Old insulation, common household chemicals and molds and mildew are some of the things that can add to pollutant levels in your home.

Windows and DoorsWestchester, Putnam and Fairfield Counties Energy Solutions, Windows and Doors

Windows and doors not only add to the interior and exterior beauty of your home, but also to its security and protection. At the same time, however, those same windows and doors can be a prime source of drafts, lost heat and cooling — and wasted energy dollars. Because in most cases, when it comes down to it, the ultimate efficiency of your windows and doors is less dependent on brand and price, and more on the quality of their installation.

Roofing and SidingWestchester, Putnam and Fairfield Counties Energy Solutions, Roofing and Siding

On the exterior of your house, your roof and siding can also affect energy efficiency and costs. Old, damaged or failing shingles not only create the risk of leaks and harm to your home’s interior, but can also absorb and transfer heat from the roof into your home as well. Old, worn and energy-inefficient siding materials can also add to heat and cooling loss. At the same time, gaps, cracks and crevices can open the way for moisture, drafts and insects.

Lower Your Energy BillWestchester, Putnam and Fairfield Counties Energy Solutions, Using Solar to Lower Your Energy Bill

Solar is another energy efficiency option to consider. It’s relatively simple to install, easy to operate, requires virtually no maintenance and its power source—sunlight—is reliable, locally available and always free. By installing a solar system, you can, wholly or partially, become your own energy provider and reduce electricity costs for years to come. And with new federal, state, local and utility incentives, it’s also more affordable than you might think.
