Being a Phoenix energy auditor is not just all about crawling around in insulation, measuring duct leakage, and sizing solar electric systems for homes. We are all about reducing your utility bills, yes, but there are many other benefits to being energy efficient, such as a more comfortable home, a home with less dust, and a quieter heating and cooling system. We recommend both conservation and efficiency upgrades to reduce your APS or SRP electric bills. Conservation recommendations are if it is cold in your home, rather than turning on the heater, you put on a sweater. Efficiency upgrades have to do with upgrading your insulation, ductwork sealing and window treatments, so your home is more comfortable and you don’t have to change a thing.
Here is a recommendation we don’t always talk about, but many homeowners may find useful, and that is what you can do with open, unwanted gifts or extra stuff lying around your home. Lots of us have old books and other knacks we never use and you may not want to go through the effort of a garage sale. With the web, there are many places where you can sell your old stuff rather than the trash. www.amazon.com is a great place to get rid of old books as is www.ebay.com. If you aren’t getting any takers on those websites, try www.swap.com. For your old gadgets try www.gazelle.com and for your cell phones www.recellular.com or try your local women’s shelter. Have old Apple iPod or a used iPhone? www.tunecycle.com is a great place to sell old iPhones and Apple products.
