A home energy audit is the first step on the path toward a more comfortable, affordable, healthier home. Using a variety of high-tech, state-of-the-art tools, we are 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, which 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 (which includes all the components that make up your home’s outer shell, including windows, doors, insulation levels, and the level of air leakage in between building materials); and 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 host of other tools, and our years of experience to ensure that we fully understand all the factors related to how your home performs. Once we have all that information we can tailor a plan to specifically suit your house and your needs.
