Knowing what energy efficiency improvements to make in a home and how they can work together requires special expertise.
A Home Energy Inspection will provide you with valuable information regarding the existing condition of your home and help identify potential improvements.
The inspection typically takes 1-4 hours depending on the size and complexity of your home.
A Home Energy Inspection consists of a visual inspection of the living space, attic, crawl space/basement, and the exterior of your home. Potentially a number of special diagnostic tests can be performed with special equipment such as a blower door, which measures how much air is leaking from your home; duct blaster which measures how much air your HVAC ductwork is leaking; combustion safety testing; and other testing as deemed necessary for your home.
A report will be generated using the results from the home inspection and potentially from using energy analysis software that models your current home energy usage and estimated savings. The report includes recommended improvements and associated costs, savings, and benefits.
