Realtors, home buyers, and home sellers: Residential Energy Auditors works with Realtors to provide their clients (buyers or sellers) with useful information about the energy efficiency of a house.  Realtors can request one of three types of Home Energy Audit or simply request a review of the home to locate air leakages in the home. Prices are negotiated depending on the services requested and the number of audits the Realtor requests.

Tax credits, energy efficient mortgages (EEM’s), or any home owners who desire an energy improvement mortgage, you'll need a certified Energy Rating.

BLOWER DOOR TEST

Professional energy auditors use blower door tests to help determine a home's air tightness. These are some reasons for establishing the proper building tightness :( 1) Reducing energy consumption due to air leakage.

DUCT TESTING

If your home is over seven years old, have your ducts professionally tested by a certified Home Energy Rating System (HERS) technician. Duct testing is also advisable whenever heating and air conditioning units undergo a diagnostic tune-up.

INFRARED SCANNING

Thermograph measures surface temperatures by using an Infrared camera. This tool see’s light that is in the heat spectrum. Images on the camera show the temperature variations of the building’s skin, ranging from lighter colors for warm regions to darker colors for cooler areas.

DUCT BLASTER TEST (DUCT TESTING) 

It’s important to have your system that delivers warm or color air during the summer and winter time throughout your house tested to make sure the system is working efficiently. Duct leakage may be one of the largest sources of energy loss in some homes when the leakage is to unconditioned space. Leaky supply ductwork causes expensive conditioned air to be lost before it can be delivered to the house, forcing your system to run longer to keep you comfortable.  Leaky ductwork can seriously degrade indoor air quality by pulling pollutants and irritants directly into your house.  Leaky return ductwork can also pull moisture into your home, making it feel uncomfortable even when the air conditioning is running.

    Earl first did an Energy Audit in my house. I was pleased with his work and how he went out of his way to help me with a Virginia Rebate for energy work in your home. I hired him again to do all of the suggestions on his energy audit. He did the work himself and it was all great.
