Can Your Rental Properties Benefit from Energy Audits? 

If you own rental properties in Los Angeles or elsewhere in the United States one of the best things you can do is have an energy audit done for each of your rental properties

In this house management article, we will provide you with more information about why this audit is important and what you can expect from the process. 

Why Are Home Energy Audits Important? 

Home energy audits are important because they can help you to find potential issues with your investment property that you didn’t even know existed, prioritize repairs, improve the resale value of your property and lower your carbon footprint as well.  

What to Expect from A Home Energy Audit? 

When you have a home energy audit you can expect your home to be inspected in much the same manner that it was inspected when you initially purchased it. The only difference between the two audits is that the individual who conducts the energy audit will be specifically looking for areas where your rental property isn’t energy efficient and they will be offering you suggestions on things that you should repair or improve in your home to make it more energy efficient. 

When to Have A Home Energy Audit 

Thankfully, with the weather that we have in Southern California, you can have a home energy audit all year long because we don’t have inclement weather here like other parts of the country during the winter and spring months.   

You may want to consider having a home energy audit conducted when your property is vacant because this will make it easy for your home to be inspected by a professional. If your property isn’t vacant though, make sure you give your tenants a 24-hour notice just so they know what to expect when you enter the rental property.
