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.
