WHAT IS AN ENERGY AUDIT?
An energy audit is the first step to addressing any concerns with your home or business comfort levels and energy use.
An audit will show you problems that may, when corrected, save you significant amounts of money over time. During the audit, you can pinpoint where you are losing energy.
We use a variety of techniques and equipment to determine the energy efficiency of a structure. Using equipment such as a blower door, which measures the extent of air leaks in your home or business and infrared camera, which reveal hard-to-detect areas of air infiltration and missing insulation.
PREPARING FOR AN ENERGY AUDIT
Before the energy auditor visits your house or office make a list of any existing problems such as condensation and uncomfortable or drafty rooms. Have copies or a summary of your annual energy useage. We use this information to establish what to look for during the audit. Your answers will help us uncover some simple ways to reduce your home or office energy consumption.
