Are you tempted to install a solar system because of the sun’s dazzling rays? Red Solar can assist with this, but it is important to first perform a solar energy audit before installing a system. This audit is a crucial part of any purchase of a solar system. Our team of energy professionals explains why.

Anyone who is interested in buying a solar system should conduct a comprehensive solar energy audit. This thorough inspection will help you understand your current energy usage and find any potential energy leaks in your home. The Red Solar team will inspect your home and identify any energy leaks. They then create a report to show you the best energy-saving options for your home. The audit could reveal that spray foam insulation or appliances can be added to reduce your energy consumption. You can save money even before you have a solar system installed.

It is also a good time to assess your home’s average monthly energy consumption. Auditors will examine between 6-12 months of energy consumption to determine where the energy is being used most frequently in the home. Adjustments can then be made.

Safety is perhaps the most important aspect. A safety test for combustion is performed during a solar energy audit. The test looks at home heating equipment for exhaust leakage, carbon monoxide levels and gas leakage. Cracked pipes may also be tested. Our team will review the results and recommend ways to fix any leakages or prevent them from happening again.
