New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) February 26, 2014
Sunlight Contractors, LLC has announced that it is taking steps to provide homeowners with the tools needed to reduce overall home energy usage. The company is making a comprehensive home energy audit mandatory before the installation of any type of solar panels or home energy improvements. This audit, performed by licensed, RESNET-certified Home Energy Rater (HERS) and Building Performance Analyst (BPI) will help homeowners adopt a strategy to reduce home energy consumption and reduce energy bills.
Sunlight Contractors, LLC is a Greater New Orleans-based provider of solar panel installation and solar power technology, solar hot water heating systems, insulation, and other renewable energy services in Louisiana. In taking the step to require a home energy audit, the company feels it is setting a new standard. Until now, the solar industry and home energy audit industry have largely been separate. Many solar companies offer home energy reduction services as a secondary service often performed by untrained solar installers.
Monica Boshnack president of Sunlight Contractors, LLC said, “We’re changing the focus from just solar or just home energy audits to a complete home energy reduction strategy. No one else in Louisiana has the licensing certifications and solar experience we have and can offer a complete home energy reduction plan like we do.”
The net effect of the new policy is to arm each homeowner with a complete home energy reduction strategy in addition to a solar energy investment. A home energy audit is designed to pinpoint energy leaks and identify ways to reduce energy usage, steps that can result in a savings of 30% – 60% in monthly utility costs. An audit by a RESNET-certified Home Energy Rater can also qualify a home for any available federal, state or local incentives related to home energy efficiency.
To promote this new policy and service, Sunlight Contractors, LLC is offering home energy audits along with a complete solar analysis which is normally a $750.00 value without cost to qualified homeowners until the 15th of April.
“We’ve looked into it and have yet to find any company in Louisiana that offers this level of service up front, let alone without a fee. Eliminating energy leaks and reducing your overall usage while adding a solar system has the effect of potentially reducing your utility bill to zero,” said Corey Yates founder of Sunlight Contractors, LLC.
