Energy Evaluation Worksheet
JEA is a non-profit and it is important to us to make sure end users are cognizant of ways to reduce energy use, both to keep rates low and to reduce our impact on the environment. This guide provides JEA customers with a simple, economical way to evaluate their home energy use and to learn how to save on their bills. It is not intended as a replacement for professional advice.
If at any time during the evaluation you feel uncomfortable performing a task, do not perform it!
Your safety and welfare always comes first.
Items of particular concern:
- Asbestos - a gray or white fibrous material found around pipes, ducts, heating equipment, and vermiculite insulation. Asbestos is dangerous, especially when it becomes air-borne. Do not interact with anything you suspect contains asbestos and discontinue that portion of the audit.
- Fiberglass – a plastic matrix reinforced by fine fibers of glass found in insulation. It is a known human carcinogen when inhaled. Use goggles, a mask, gloves, and long sleeves.
- Wiring – Electricity can not be seen, so always turn of electricity at the breaker before working in the vicinity of wires to avoid electrical shock.
- Mold – Excessive moisture in the home can lead to mold growth; however, when mold spores are present in large quantities, they can present a health hazard to humans, potentially causing allergic reactions and respiratory problems. Consult a professional or the EPA pamphlet “A Guide to Mold and Moisture in your Home.”
