We are extremely excited about the future which will expand the nature and value of our services in the residential and commercial markets.
A home energy audit is the first step on the path toward a more comfortable, more affordable, healthier home. Using a variety of high-tech, state-of-the-art tools, we’re able to identify the key areas where your home is wasting energy, and recommend the most cost-effective improvements for maximum comfort, minimum energy bills, and optimal indoor air quality and building health and safety.
Our approach in conducting home energy audits is to take a comprehensive, whole-house assessment of the home, which distinguishes our “whole-house energy audit” from the “clipboard audits” offered by many utilities, box stores, and companies that offer a discounted audit as a means to sell products or services.
Our whole-house energy audit looks at the building envelope (which includes all the components that make up your home’s outer shell, including windows, doors, insulation levels, and the level of air leakage in between building materials); all combustion equipment including boilers, furnaces and water heaters; and the movement of air within the home to ensure that the air you and your family are breathing is fresh, healthy and safe. During the audit, we use an infrared camera to identify air leakage and deficient insulation, a blower door to measure the rate of air infiltration in the home, and a duct blaster test to determine whether your ducts are well-sealed, among other tools.”
