If you’ve ever wondered what the best way to save power in your home may be, why not consider a Glenco energy audit? As a part of this audit, the things to look out for are:
Hot water units
It is important to check for any leaks in the hot water system to make sure it is running at optimum capacity and not wasting any energy. Additionally, we would check if this system is on normal peak rate, or if it could be placed on an off-peak system to save costs. The other option is to go to an instantaneous electrical hot water system. These units only heat and use energy when the tap is turned on. These systems require three phase power. This will only use energy when you are using your water. This is opposed to a storage tank which will continually heat the water even when you are not using it.
To assess the energy efficiency of lighting, we would check to see the quality of the lighting and the type of lights installed. Lower quality lighting can use more energy when in use. Additionally, LED lighting is going to save a lot of energy costs depending on how many lights you may have to be replaced. Another factor to take into account is the operational time of the lighting. Do you have a sensor light that is being triggered by the dog all day/night? Do you have some lights running on a timer unnecessarily? These are all things to take into account.
The first step in assessing the energy efficiency and carrying out ...
