When you’re in the market for a new house in Powell, Dublin, Upper Arlington, Westerville or Columbus, you need to know everything you can about the condition of the house. A home inspection gives you some of the information you need on the home. Your inspector will look at (and report on) the condition of the roof, basement, attic and foundation, the electrical system, plumbing and heating/cooling systems.
While the inspection gives you valuable information, it doesn’t tell you anything about the level of home comfort you can expect, or the energy costs associated with your possible purchase.
You wouldn’t buy a car without test driving it (well, you shouldn’t). Similarly, you shouldn’t buy a home without giving it a “test drive,” AKA a diagnostic energy audit.
Test the Energy Efficiency of Your New Home
How? You can’t live in your home and then agree to buy it. But you can have a diagnostic energy audit done on it when the house is being inspected. That’s where Greene Solutions comes in. Our team is based out of Columbus and will give you the information you need to make decisions about the house based on energy conservation measures. We’ll give you a pictures of the upgrades that have been done, how well they were done, and energy upgrades that should be done so that you end up with a healthy home that is comfortable.
Greene Solutions will look at levels of insulation, air sealing and combustion safety. Improving the home comfort could include additional fiberglass or spray foam insulation, or new windows. We will give you recommendations on the most cost-effective measures you should take.
Should you buy the house, we can then help you carry out the home energy retrofit measures we recommended in the audit.
