Free On-Site Home Energy Audits

One way to make sure you’re being as efficient (and, therefore, as conservative) as possible in your energy spending is to go through an energy auditAn energy audit can be a valuable tool to understanding your energy usage, utility bill and ways for you to then help reduce it. 

Kerrville Public Utility Board offers both residential and commercial energy audits. This program is a free service to our residential customers

During the energy audit, a contractor will inspect your home or business and provide a written report making recommendations for improving the energy efficiency. All aspects of the home or business are evaluated.

Some of the items inspected are:

      • Air Conditioning: The number one energy consumer in the typical home is the heating and air conditioning system. Changing filters and using economical thermostat settings will save money!
      • Attic Insulation: Recommended: R-38, approximately 12″. Additional insulation can be added to existing insulation to save money.
      • Attic Ventilation: Allows summertime heat to escape; reduces heat load on the house, ductwork and extends shingle life. Most homes need more ventilation.
      • Water Heating: Lower thermostat settings to 120° F. Wrap exposed pipes and add a blanket to the tank.
      • Air Infiltration: Seal drafty doors and windows with weather-stripping and caulking. Install double pane windows and treat with tinting or Low-E coating to reduce summer heat gain and winter heat loss.
      • Lighting: Energy-efficient light bulbs like LED lighting help you lower your overall electricity consumption and replace your light bulbs less often.
      • Appliances: Cleaning the coil under the refrigerator will help it run cooler and more efficiently. Disconnect the power first!
      • Miscellaneous: Outside equipment, well pumps & aerobic-type septic pumps, can often be overlooked as they are seldom visible and can significantly affect the bill.
