Category: Home Energy Audit

A certified home energy technician (also referred to as an: auditor, assessor, inspector, analyst, rater) comes to your home to review all of the energy components inside and outside of your dwelling unit. The technician conducts a detailed examine using home performance technology, software, and diagnostic tools. The technician will look at your insulation, heating and air conditioning systems, windows, doors, duct work, lighting, appliances, furnace, water heater, holes where electrical lines pass through and more. Tests and inspections are conducted to find out where your home could be more energy efficient. The auditor reviews all of the ways energy escapes your home then gives you a customized comprehensive energy report with details, recommendations of any items that should be fixed, suggested upgrades, estimated costs, and projected savings. A home energy auditor should not be tied to the same company that would install or purchase the materials you need to improve your home.

 

U.S. EPA Thanks DuctTesters Again for ENERGY STAR Homes

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) thanked DuctTesters for contributing 14 ENERGY STAR certified homes in 2016 and for the continued commitment in energy-efficient new homes.  DuctTesters is once again proud to be an ENERGY STAR Certified Homes Partner in 2017, helping homebuyers experience the peace of mind, quality, comfort, and value that comes with living in an Energy Star certified home.  ENERGY STAR is a joint voluntary program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy that helps businesses and individuals save energy and fight climate change through energy efficient products, homes, and buildings.

In order to earn the ENERGY STAR label on a new home, a certified third-party organization (such as DuctTesters) must verify the home’s energy efficiency against the label’s mandatory minimum compliance requirements. If you are interested in certifying and/or obtaining an ENERGY STAR Certified Home, feel free to contact DuctTesters or see the National Program Requirements.
