Home Energy Audit
If you’re experiencing higher-than-normal electric bills, but don’t wish to complete a thorough audit of your home’s energy usage, our high bill assessment might be right for you.
Our trained energy experts will conduct a walk through of your home and identify simple things you can do to help lower your usage and your bills. This assessment takes about an hour to complete.
High Bill Assessment
Our energy audit program is available to members at no cost. All homes are eligible for a walk-through audit, including a comprehensive inspection to check lighting, appliances, water heaters, insulation in the attic and crawl space, and air sealing measures, plus an infrared camera assessment.
We calculate the efficiency of a home by dividing the highest summer bill in the past 12 months by the square footage of the home. Homes with usage higher than $0.10 per square foot will generally have room become more energy efficient.
For more information e-mail Woodruff Electric or call (870) 633-2262 to schedule a high bill assessment.
Estimate Your Home’s Energy Efficiency
While a professional energy audit from your local cooperative is the best way to determine whether your home is energy-efficient, you can estimate your home’s energy efficiency by taking your average electric bill and dividing it by the square footage of your home. For example, a 1,800 square-foot home with a $260* average electric bill would cost 14 cents per square foot. *Amount may not include fuel cost adjustment.
Homes that cost 9 cents or higher per square foot would benefit from energy-efficiency improvements. Adjusting your thermostat, air sealing your home, replacing bulbs with LEDs and regularly maintaining your heating and cooling unit can help to improve your home’s energy efficiency.
For more information e-mail Woodruff Electric or call (870) 633-2262 to discuss your home’s energy efficiency improvement options.
