Free Doesn’t Always Mean Free (part 2 of 2)


Time Costs
Most free energy audits require long lead times before an appointment can be scheduled. Some companies require up to three months before a representative can be made available. The time lost waiting could be time spent performing a comprehensive audit and, if desired, implementing recommendations to maximize your energy efficiency savings.
Safety Costs
We cannot emphasize enough the importance of safety when considering an energy audit. An auditor must enter your home and will require to access to all areas of your home including the locations of your home energy systems. Therefore, you need to make sure that the auditor coming into your home has the certifications necessary to perform the work that must be performed AND to do so with an understanding of the safety issues that exist.
