Energy Audit Services
An energy auditor is a building science professional who has been trained and certified by a recognized body such as RESNET or BPI to conduct home diagnostic work. The services provided through an energy audit should be similar to those presented below.
An effective energy audit should with a conversation between the auditor and the homeowner about the homeowner’s motivation for the audit. High utility bills and comfort issues are two common areas of discussion, though indoor air quality concerns and moisture issues are also fair game. The auditor should let the homeowner’s particular concerns and objectives guide the entire testing and reporting process.
Chances are, you're spending much more on utility bills than you need to be. A home energy audit allows you to fix that. A comprehensive home energy audit will use the latest technology, including a blower door to assess air leakage and infrared thermography to point out leaks in your home's thermal envelope, deficiencies in insulation and other opportunities to stop heat loss and reduce energy consumption while improving the comfort and safety of your home. In addition to recommending fixes to reduce energy, we'll also evaluate carbon monoxide safety and other air quality issues and improvements to temperature and lighting comfort. Our comprehensive audit report will include a prioritized list of potential improvement and may include an estimate of the savings the repairs may likely lead to.
