Home Energy Assessment
A home energy assessment (also referred to as an: audit, inspection, analysis) is the first step in making your home more efficient. An energy audit can help you assess how much energy your home uses and evaluate what measures you can take to save money, save energy, and feel more comfortable in your home. A visit from one of our Certified Existing Home Technician (Rater) will allow you to find out how your home is currently performing. During the visit we collect information about your home’s construction and use specialized equipment to analyze the performance of the HVAC and the house as a whole. An infrared camera is used to reveal hard to detect air infiltration, missing insulation, and is a valuable tool for finding the cause of your homes discomfort. Then our certified energy analyst will use a state certified program to analyze the performance of your home and show you how the proposed upgrades will affect your homes overall efficiency, reduce your utility bills, and improve your indoor comfort.
Please note: When hiring a home energy auditor, the company should not be affiliated with the same company that would install or purchase the materials you need to improve your home. The home energy technician should be a third party inspector (such as DuctTesters) that would not profit from any installations or products that are suggested or needed to fix or upgrade your home.
