Spring checkup for your home


Spring is just around the corner. Flowers are blooming, and temperatures are rising. Now is the perfect time to refresh your home ahead of peak allergy and humidity season. Energy Smart can help you get your home ready. Here are a few reminders that a Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® assessment can help your home function better so you can feel your best.

  • Windows: Check for excessive moisture or condensation, which could indicate air leaks, poor ventilation, mold or mildew. Fixing air leaks keeps conditioned air inside, can improve air quality and reduce your energy bills. 
  • Air vents: Check for excessive dust and strange smells. Fresh air circulation is essential for a healthy home. Proper ventilation helps prevent moisture buildup and mold growth.
  • Air filters:Check for clogged air filters, which can reduce airflow, making your heating/cooling system work harder. 
  • Room temperature: Check to see if any rooms in your home feel significantly warmer or cooler than others, which could indicate poor insulation or air leaks in your home. Insulation helps keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter to keep you comfortable all year round.
