Home Performance Audit
A 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 Insulation levels
o The level of air leakage in between building materials
♦ All combustion equipment such as:
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!
