Tag: Home Energy Assessment
Earth Day is Friday, April 22, 2016. We are energy consultants and appreciate people interested in energy efficiency (using our resources to the best abilities we can which protects our planet’s resources). By being interested in energy efficiency, we can become more aware of our energy use, study our use, learn about products that we use that use energy, find ways to conserve, and use our vital resources the best we can. Save Money. Save Energy. Feel More Comfortable. Conserve Our Planet’s Resources.
There are a number of Earth Day Events going on in nearby communities. Find a local event near you (http://bit.ly/25J9rWz) and take your family out to celebrate Earth Day this month. In the meantime, we have collected a few links to share with you this year. Read about the history of #EarthDay, visit NASA’s page where people share what they do with their families to help the Earth, watch a video explaining what actually happens to those items after you put them in a recycle bin, download a guide to energy efficient heating and cooling, and find out what a Home Energy Assessment (Home Energy Audit) is and how you can Save Money, Save Energy, Feel More Comfortable, and Help Conserve Our Planet’s Resources.

DuctTesters attended the 2016 NAHB International Builders’ Show (IBS) in Las Vegas. This convention is the nation’s largest annual residential housing construction trade event. IBS and the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) co-located to create a Design & Construction Week®. This year, the International Window Coverings Expo (IWCE) and the International Surface Event (TISE) also joined in. This massive event is said to have brought in over 110,000 builders, general contractors, remodelers, designers, flooring professionals, HVAC contractors, insulation contractors, energy efficient manufactures, and other product specifiers from around the globe.
DuctTesters was proud to support the event. There were over 2,000 exhibitor brands, new innovative ideas and products, a number of educational seminars and tons of networking opportunities. It was nice seeing the home building industry’s enthusiasm returning. Here are a few fun photos from the event.
A home energy audit is the first step in making your home more efficient. An audit can help you assess how much energy your home uses and evaluate what measures you can take to improve efficiency. A visit from one of our Certified Existing Home Raters will allow you to find out how your home is currently performing. During the visit we collect information about your homes 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.
