Home Energy Audits

The purpose of a Home Energy Audit is to determine the general condition of the home with respect to energy performance and the homeowner's potential willingness to improve the home's energy performance.  As part of the Survey, a report will be produced that shows a general range of a home's energy efficiency based on specific criteria such as insulation, equipment age, general condition, energy usage and costs including a lookup matrix based on regional norms and climate.

The key to achieving savings in your home is a whole-house energy efficiency plan. To take a whole-house approach, view your home as an energy system with interdependent parts. For example, your heating system is not just a furnace, it's a heat-delivery system that starts at the furnace and delivers heat throughout your home using a network of ducts. Even a top-of-the line energy-efficient furnace will waste a lot of fuel if the ducts, walls, attic, windows, and doors are not properly sealed and insulated. Taking a whole-house approach to saving energy ensures that dollars you invest to save energy are spent wisely.
