Understanding Your Home’s Systems Including Heating and Cooling Systems

A Home Performance Energy Audit will give you a better understanding of your home’s heating and cooling systems. Our audit will help you identify air leaks in your home that are increasing energy costs, as well as provide you with information about the condition and effectiveness of your insulation. With this knowledge, you can make informed decisions about how to get the most out of your home.

  • ​​Client Interview: Upon arrival, we sit down with the homeowner to discuss their concerns, comfort issues, and collect basic information about the home.
  • Review of Utility Bills: During the interview, we will review 12 months of your utility bills to determine the home’s historical energy consumption and discuss any patterns or observations made from the review.
  • Visual Inspection: Before performing any audit testing, we will walk throughout the property with you to observe​ the current condition of the home and pinpoint any potential problem areas.
  • Blower Door Test: This test is used to determine the air leakage of the client’s home and will allow us to recommend how to improve the air tightness and ventilation of the home.
  • Infrared Inspection: This test determines visually where heat or cold is escaping from the home and will allow us to recommend areas that would benefit from additional insulation and air sealing.
  • Combustion Appliance Zone Test: We will perform a series of tests that evaluate the efficiency of the home’s​ combustion appliance ventilation and exhaust system.
  • Customer Report: Upon completion of the energy audit, we will produce a detailed report including: current​ energy usage, health/safety concerns, building tightness, recommended improvements and estimated savings.

The audit takes approximately 2-3 hours depending on the size of the home and the questions you have for your​ expert.

Yes, it is important that you are available at least during the start of the audit to answer any questions the auditor​ might have.
