Energy audits focus on identifying the deficiencies and providing recommendations that will reduce your home's operating expenses, improve its comfort provisions, render a healthier living environment, and reduce the need for costly repairs resulting from weather durability issues.

Save Money & Increase Home Comfort:

  • Test equipment indicates the sources of costly building envelope and duct air leakage
  • Raters identify and provide recommendations to correct inadequate insulation R-values
  • Improved insulation and air-leakage reduction allows for smaller, more inexpensive HVAC systems
  • Computer-based sizing calculations prevent HVAC system over-sizing
  • Occupant health and safety hazards are identified and repair recommendations areprovided
  • Corrected efficiency issues will save money over time
  • Savings-to-Investment ratios are generated to determine how long improvements will take to pay for themselves.

The annual return-on-investment of improvements is typically about 16%. (RESNET)

Increase Home Market Value & Increase Re-sale Opportunities:

  • $1 decrease in annual energy costs = increase in market value of $20. (
  • Rising energy rates make an efficient home more appealing

  • Hidden infiltration pathways of moisture laden air
  • Hidden condensation development
  • Inadequate fresh-air ventilation
  • Mold, Dust Mite, and Fungus promoting conditions
  • Radon Infiltration from the crawlspace
