Our Typical Homeowner Customer Wants
Our typical customers fall into a few categories
- Energy Savers
- Readying to Green Up
- Comfort Seekers
Many of our customers are looking to save money through reducing their energy consumption, making their energy affordable. By identifying energy leaks within the home, in the form of air leaks, duct leaks, insulation needs, our customers identify energy consuming problems. Our customers are often able to perform the necessary upgrades themselves but can hire Agreenergy and its partners to upgrade these household elements, or hire third parties for these upgrades- It’s up to you!
Sometimes, upgrades for energy (financial) conservation come in the form of green technologies, like Geothermal, appliance upgrades, and, even solar technologies. Agreenergy will offer suggestions and options when its feasible through our partners based right here in North East Ohio.
Readying to Green Up
Agreenergy has many environmentally conscious customers who are looking to conserve more than their funds- they are looking to reduce their carbon footprint. A home performance/energy audit is the first step in using energy wisely. The use of a green technology, such as geothermal, solar thermal, or solar PV (electricity) is maximized when coupled with an energy efficient home.
Nothing squelches the comfort of a home like a draft running past your ankles. Nothing can ruin a meal like the smell of air drifting up from what shouldn’t be an icky basement. Proper Air flow, leak sealing, and other comfort related items will be identified through an Agreenergy audit.
Typical Outcomes of a Home Performance/Energy Audit
Each home is different, but most homes can see remarkable improvement in their energy costs from making small to medium investments in their home’s infrastructure. Our customers typically see 10-25% reductions in their home’s energy consumption- without changing their comfort settings or habits. It’s like losing weight without exercise!
Utilizing green technologies show a much higher reduction in energy use, however the payback time is extended becauseof the costs for these technologies. HOWEVER, there may be significant financial opportunities for adopting these technologies now. – see our FINANCIAL section for the MOST up to date information on tax credits, loan opportunties, grants, and more!
