The world “audit” typically associated with taxes or with other unwanted inspections, but this is not the case for audits relating to energy efficiency. When it comes to your home’s performance, an energy audit deals with a positive goal in mind – keeping your home more comfortable while using less energy. So, how exactly does an energy audit work?
How Does an Energy Audit Help My Home?
Put simply, an energy audit is the process of thoroughly inspecting your home in order to find the upgrades that will most improve its energy usage and overall performance. Inefficiencies in your home can develop over time without your knowledge, or might have always been there. By learning exactly of how your home is performing, you will be able to:
● Conserve more energy
● Save on your utility bills
● Increase the lifespan of your heating & air conditioning equipment
● Stay more comfortable and breathe easier
Testing, Testing, Energy Audit
So, how can we determine what the most beneficial home upgrade is for your home? A series of diagnostic tests will uncover exactly where your home is losing the most energy. This can be through holes and gaps in your ducting, or holes in the structure. These holes can also introduce contaminants into the air and affect your indoor air quality. We are able to locate additional weak points in your home’s sealing or insulation by using infrared thermal imaging.
After testing your home inside and out for inefficiencies, you are prescribed home performance upgrades that will bring a number of benefits to you home, day in and day out, all year round. These upgrades include:
● Redesign and optimization of your home’s ductwork
● Upgrading your air filtration system
● Improving your insulation
● Properly air sealing your home
