Get Started With a Home Energy Audit

Perhaps the best way to determine whether your home needs new insulation is by conducting an energy audit. This can be as simple as a visual inspection of the home’s heating system or a complete professional diagnostic test using the latest technology, including using infrared cameras for thermal imaging.

Lightning Restoration will visually inspect the attic to check for proper ventilation, insulation levels, and sealing and ensure it functions correctly. We also visually and physically inspect the home’s windows and doors to ensure they are sealed and working properly and determine whether they have been compromised.

Let us put together a full report and estimates to replace any areas of your home to help improve the building envelope and boost energy efficiency!

The Benefits of a Home Energy Audit

Why conduct a home energy audit with Lightning Restoration? Because what you spend in time and money today will help you save on energy bills for years to come!

The home improvements you make as a result of your audit will help you feel more comfortable throughout the year, and you’ll enjoy your home more, too. On average, an audit can help you save 5% to 30% on your monthly residential energy costs.

To get the best results from a thermographic scan, the Department of Energy recommends that homeowners in the northern US should have it performed during the winter months.

Financial & Tax Incentives

Many states offer incentives such as rebates for installing insulation, and utility businesses may offer low-cost financing for energy-efficient renovations. Check out the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency to learn more. You can also review the valuable tax incentives for upgrades such as energy-efficient windows.

Lightning Restoration is happy to help you look up rebates for homeowners so you can get tax credits or rebates from the energy companies! (MN Energy, Xcel Energy, Dakota Electric, etc.)

Thermal Imaging

While there are many issues our experts can spot with the naked eye due to experienced training, thermal imaging can help us detect abnormalities and potential issues that are practically invisible. Having this type of inspection done when buying a new home is invaluable!

Thermal imaging can detect:

  • Hidden mold and moisture
  • Electrical hotspots
  • Structural defects, such as damaged or missing components
  • Heat loss
  • Pests like bugs and mice

The Benefits of New Insulation

Get ready to experience the benefits of new insulation! After a quick repair job or insulation installation, you can expect to save energy, improve your home’s indoor air quality, and enjoy an increased market value on your home – among other advantages!

Save Energy

When your home has worn down or damaged insulation, it can cause your HVAC system to work harder. This often results in a decrease in energy efficiency. New insulation increases your home’s energy efficiency and saves you money on costly heating and cooling bills.

Return on Investment

Because new insulation increases your home’s energy efficiency, you can expect to see a sufficient return on investment. You will save hundreds of dollars with lower energy bills each month.

Improve Air Quality

Insulation assists in keeping harmful particles such as dust, dirt, mildew, and mold out of your home. When your insulation is worn down and failing, it can allow the accumulation of these particles to pollute your home’s air. Replacing your insulation can assist in keeping your air free of these toxins by creating a more durable barrier. Additionally, replacing your insulation will rid your home of any toxins already accumulating in the old insulation.

Protect Your Home’s Foundation

After several years, old or damaged insulation can eventually allow moisture to accumulate in your home. When moisture and water vapor intrude on your home, it can cause the foundation to rot and war down. Additionally, poor attic insulation can ruin your home’s roof and cause ice dams to form. At Lightning Restoration, we install new insulation capable of increasing your home’s durability and protection from water damage.

Save HVAC System

When your home is especially drafty due to poor insulation, it can cause your HVAC system to work harder and wear out faster. With new, durable insulation, you can expand the lifespan of your HVAC system by improving drafts and air leaks.

Increase Market Value

Because many buyers value new insulation in a potential home, taking the time to install new insulation into your home prior to selling it can increase your home’s market value. Lightning Restoration’s prompt and efficient insulation services can help you prepare to sell your home.
