Energy Audits – Conservation First!
Why get an Energy Audit?
An energy audit assesses how much energy your home or building consumes and the amount of energy wasted due to inefficiency. Most homeowners average a 20% savings on their heating and AC bills after implementing the recommended remediation work. This means a quick 2-4 year payback of the money invested in the improvements.
Our 3 step Energy Audit process provides you with an initial test, money-saving and energy-efficient improvement recommendations, and a “test out” at the end to see how well your house performs*. We can complete the recommended improvements, or the homeowner or another contractor can complete the work.
Our Energy Audit process utilizes the newest technologies in building science and industry-proven procedures to detect and expose sources of energy loss and hidden health and comfort issues.
Our energy audit includes the following
In depth conversation with the home owner to assess the homeowner’s concerns, needs, goals, plans, and existing problems.
Visual and physical inspection of building envelope structure (insulation & building material)
Combustion Safety Test
Inspect furnaces and water heaters to address their efficiency, safety, health and comfort related concerns.
- Equipment efficiency and condition analysis (Combustion Analyzer)
- Carbon monoxide leak test (CO Tester)
- Back drafting test
- Gas leak and flame roll-out test

Blower Door Test (Infiltration Test)
Using diagnostic equipment, depressurize the whole house to expose air infiltration from the outside and leaks in the conditioned envelope. Determine the total air leakage of the building in square inches.
Duct Blaster Test (optional)
Test duct systems for air leakage if applicable
Using an Infrared Camera we can take full and sectional images of your building to highlight temperature differences to expose conditioned air leakage spots. This technology allows us to identify poor insulation levels and other defects inside your walls without tearing your walls up. Available on warm and cold days only so that temperature difference observations can be observed.
Kill a Watt Test
Determine the usage of phantom loads and full loads.
* Free test-out energy audit after all the recommended improvements are completed.
