How Energy Audits Can Keep Costs Low Even During Summer Scorchers
According to EPA calculations, it costs an average of $315 per year to run a conventional central air conditioning unit in Newark, NJ. And with summers getting hotter and longer every year, your cooling costs could be even higher for 2016! Looking for a way to decrease temperatures inside your home without increasing your home’s energy expenses? Tomasso Bros. can show you how it’s done.
As a Building Performance Institute-accredited contractor, we can help you take full advantage of the New Jersey Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Program. Our reduced-cost home energy audit shows where and how your home is wasting energy, as well as ways to conserve energy moving forward. Following an audit, the New Jersey Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Program offers rebates and low-interest loans on a number of energy efficient home improvement packages, including ENERGY STAR-rated:
- Central air conditioning systems
- Ductless air conditioning systems
- Duct sealing, insulation and more
According to the Department of Energy, a cooling system upgrade can reduce your air conditioning usage by up to 20-50 percent. That means huge savings off your annual energy expenses. Plus, depending on the home improvements you decide to make, you may qualify for up to $4,000 in rebates and a loan of up to $10,000 at 0% interest for up to 7 years. However, you have to act quickly, because the current Home Performance with ENERGY STAR cycle expires June 30, 2016.
