Energy Savings Audits* from Cedar Hill Home
Energy savings... "... my home is so old and leaky, I can't save any
money.. I just have to live with it..." A nice gentleman from Simsbury
told me that recently. His home was built in the 70's.. you remember bell
bottoms and... the Bee Gees...
My friend is right, when his home was built energy conservation was just a
thought in, soon to be, President Carter's head (the first energy conscience
president)... But he is wrong too. He can save real dollars with the
right energy upgrades and improvements. And, those improvements can actually
pay for themselves...
With a home Energy Audit from Cedar Hill we will show you just how much you
can save with improvements.

A certified energy inspector, from Cedar Hill Home Inspection, examines and measures the home to
find all the opportunities for saving energy. Using a blower door we can determine how much leakage your home has, and infrared thermal imager to detatc those leaks.
Specialized software produces a report which shows savings and
costs for energy efficiency improvements and provides tips on ways to save
more energy and reduce energy bills. Click for a sample report.
The report provides access to a database of contractors, a
direct line to an energy expert, and access to other energy products and
services. We also provide a list of local contractors.
The report lists the improvements that, when financed, will
save more than they cost. It includes information on the Streamlined (k)
Limited Repair Program by
which homebuyers and homeowners can finance up to an additional $35,000 into
their mortgage for energy-efficiency improvements identified by their home

A Home Energy Tune-uP® or a HERS Rating?
Rating the energy efficiency of homes has been used primarily by home
builders who want to market their new homes as being energy efficient. This
rating system has not been readily adopted by owners of existing homes and
their REALTORS® because older homes are less energy efficient than new ones,
and therefore get lower grades. The majority of older homes would score
somewhere between 40 and 70, depending on their age, whereas a home built
today should score at least 80. If the home scores 86 or higher, it is
considered an Energy Star rated home.
Tune-uP was designed specifically for owners of older homes who want to
upgrade the energy efficiency of their homes, rather than grade them. With a
more detailed Report, quick access to low-cost financing, a low price tag,
and more inspectors to do the energy audits, Tune-uP is an excellent choice
for owners or buyers of older homes, whereas rating remains the choice for
builders of new homes.
A residential energy inspection will cost less than the a regular home
inspection, if done as a stand-alone. The energy inspection can also be done
as part of a normal home inspection, which will reduce the price and cost of
