Energy Audit​

Residential Energy Audit:

Home Energy Audit is your way to make sure that your home is providing you and your family with a safe, healthy, comfortable, and energy-efficient environment. Our comprehensive audit will pinpoint heating, cooling, insulation, and air quality issues using the latest testing and diagnostic equipment and then recommend healthy, yet cost-effective solutions that will make a real difference in comfort, indoor air quality (IAQ) and your energy bill.

By using a Whole House approach testing, Home Energy Audit gets straight to the heart of your energy loss issues by first identifying problem areas and then suggesting cost-effective solutions to suit your priorities and budget. We follow BPI Standard for testing.

BPI whole-house testing efficiency approach recognizes the energy interactions throughout the entire home and acknowledges that deficiencies or inefficiencies in one element of the home can lead to increased energy demand and waste. For example, drafty doors and windows will continue to pull heat from a home, regardless of how efficient a furnace is. And while a more efficient heat source can help reduce energy bills, reducing drafts and eliminating heat loss will have a considerable effect on your budget and comfort level inside the home.

Home Energy Score:

Developed by DOE and its national laboratories, the Home Energy Score provides home owners, buyers, and renters directly comparable and credible information about a home’s energy use.

Imagine you are in the market to buy a car and comparing your options. You are weighing a number of factors in your purchasing decision, including performance, cost, size, and appearance. When you ask the salesperson what the miles-per-gallon rating for each car is, they shrug and say, “I don’t know.” Even if fuel efficiency is not the only factor you are considering, this would probably concern you as a prospective buyer.

And yet, this is how most people make decisions when buying or renting a home: without any information about how much energy the home is expected to use, how much this will cost them, or how to cost-effectively lower energy expenses.

HOME ENERGY SCORE INDEX

The Home Energy Score Report estimates home energy use, associated costs, and provides energy solutions to cost-effectively improve the home’s efficiency. Each Home Energy Score is shown on a simple one-to-ten scale, where a ten represents the most efficient homes. Mouse over the Home Energy Score graphic below to learn what specific parts of the label mean.

Features of the Home Energy Score
  • An energy efficiency score based on the home’s envelope (foundation, roof, walls, insulation, windows) and heating, cooling, and hot water systems
  • A total energy use estimate, as well as estimates by fuel type assuming standard operating conditions and occupant behavior
  • Recommendations for cost-effective improvements and associated annual cost savings estimates
  • A “Score with Improvements” reflecting the home’s expected score if cost-effective improvements are implemented

HERS Testing:

The Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index is the industry standard by which a home’s energy efficiency is measured. It’s also the nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating a home’s energy performance.
