The goal of an energy audit is to help homeowners reduce energy consumption while improving comfort, health and safety of the people living in the home. An assessment or audit will show you problems that may, when corrected, save you a significant amount of money over time.
A detailed assessment and review is completed that includes all elements of the building envelope – walls, ceilings, floors, windows, doors and much more. For each of these components, the area resistance to heat flow is measured to search for the leakage rate or infiltration of air. Some of the greatest effects on energy usage are behavior – so we take a peak at your energy billing history too.
PROFESSIONAL ENERGY AUDITORS
Auditors that are certified through the Building Performance Institute (BPI). BPI’s focus and training include house-as-a-system evaluations, diagnostics and installation.
A professional auditor uses a variety of techniques and equipment to determine the energy efficiency of a structure. Thorough assessments often use equipment such as blower doors, which measure the extent of leaks in the building envelope, and infrared cameras to reveal hard-to-detect areas of air infiltration and missing insulation.
What does all this mean to you?
It means there is no stone unturned during the audit and you’ll receive a full comprehensive report and a strategic plan to move forward. The formulated plan will provide you with a blueprint for making smart purchases and home improvements that maximize energy efficiency and save the most money.
