Home Energy AuditsA Home Performance Audit is the first step on the path toward a more comfortable, more affordable, and an overall healthier home. Using a variety of high-tech, state-of-the-art tools, we're able to identify the key areas where your home is wasting energy, and recommend the most cost-effective improvements for maximum comfort, minimum energy bills, and optimal indoor air quality and building health and safety.

Our approach in conducting Home Energy Audits is to take a comprehensive, whole-house assessment of the home. This approach distinguishes our "Whole-House Energy Audit" from the "Clipboard Audits" offered by many utilities, box stores, and companies that offer a discounted audit as a means to sell products or services.

 

Our Whole-House Energy Audit looks at:

   ♦   The building envelope (all the components that make up your home's outer shell) including:

o   Windows
o   Doors
o   Insulation levels
o   The level of air leakage in between building materials

   ♦   All combustion equipment such as:

o   Boilers
o   Furnaces
o   Water heaters

   ♦   The movement of air within the home to ensure that the air you and your family are breathing is fresh, healthy and safe.

During the audit, we use:

   ♦   An infrared camera to identify air leakage and deficient insulation
   ♦   A blower door to measure the rate of air infiltration in the home
   ♦   A duct blaster test to determine whether your ducts are well-sealed
   ♦   Many more tools!
