When their energy bills spiked and their home suffered from extremely uneven temperatures from room to room, homeowners Joanna and Anthony D. of Neptune, NJ knew something was wrong. Their first guess was their furnace, a 20-year-old model original to their three-story townhouse. But, realizing that upgrading their home heating system would be futile if other energy problems were at play, the couple decided to schedule a whole-home energy audit with Dave Hoh's Home Comfort & Energy Experts to find out what was really going on.
Joanna and Anthony got to see first-hand the reliable, informative service that our technicians can provide. We used several methods to determine how and where energy loss was occurring in the home, including a blower door test and an infrared camera. These tests revealed that air was being lost in the most unexpected places, like their bathroom. We also found, to the couple's complete surprise, that their insulation had broken down and was negatively impacting their home's indoor air quality.
After performing the audit, Dave Hoh's Home Comfort & Energy Experts was quickly able to perform the repairs and services needed to bring Joanna and Anthony the comfort and energy savings they needed. New insulation was installed in the attic, air leaks were sealed, and after these fixes were completed, the couple got the new energy-efficient natural gas furnace and water heater they had originally wanted!
One year later, Joanna and Anthony reported around a 35% increase of home energy efficiency. Now they can move from room to room within their home and feel just as comfortable no matter where they go, and the reduced energy bills each month pay for themselves! With our help, these savvy homeowners were also able to take part in the New Jersey Natural Gas 0% APR On-Bill Repayment Program because of the Home Performance with Energy Star audit we initially provided. This program helped them save thousands in rebates!
