What is Included in an Energy Audit?
- Blower Door Test — A special high powered fan is placed in an exterior doorway to blow air out of the home. The fan creates a negative air pressure, which will draw outside air in through gaps or cracks to measure just how much air leakage is occurring.
- Infrared Camera Imaging — While the blower door is operating, an infrared camera will be used to “see” behind walls, ceilings and other areas for differences in temperature. Those images will indicate spots of air leakage or poor insulation.
- Indoor Air Quality Testing — This test looks for indoor air pollutants, excess moisture and dangerous gases.
- Furnace and Water Heater Safety Inspection — To ensure proper operation and ensure dangerous carbon monoxide is not leaking into your home.
- Energy Bill Analysis — We’ll review your energy usage and consumption over the year to help pinpoint inefficiencies.
