Learn about your energy usage with a free home energy audit.
An energy audit is a thorough check of how much energy your home or business uses and how efficiently it does so. At Duke Contractors LLC, we can use an energy audit to determine how to build a solar power system that fits your needs in the Miami, Florida area.
The first step in an energy audit is to look at your old energy bills and evaluate the patterns of your energy use. Based on this information, we gain a general idea of how much energy your home uses each year. During the audit, we might also find places where you can use less energy. This could mean adding more insulation, sealing cracks, and more.
To meet your average energy needs, as well as high demand times, your solar energy system needs to be the right size. An energy audit can help us figure out how much energy you typically use, which devices and appliances are using the most energy, and if there are specific times when your energy usage tends to peak. This way, we can make sure that your solar power system is the right size to handle those times.
Once steps have been taken to make your home more energy efficient and peak load times have been identified, we use the audit to determine how much energy a solar power system would need to meet the rest of your needs. This evaluation looks at things like where you live, what direction your roof faces, whether your home gets shade, and any other assessments we need.
