Home Energy Audits allow for a comprehensive diagnoses of the homes energy performance. Audits go beyond the typical "free quote" by utilizing specialized equipment, testing procedures and knowledge to diagnose your home. "Free quotes" are great if the problem is visible, but it is impossible to diagnose air infiltration, moisture issues, thermal and combustion safety issues without the proper tools and training.

Blower Door Testing
Blower door testing allows the auditor to identify the amount and location of air infiltration into a building. The house is drawn into a controlled vacuum and electronically measured for pressure and flow. The blower door is vital to understanding and correcting a home's air infiltration. Adding insulation without managing structural air leakage is ineffective at best.
Combustion Safety Testing
Problems with combustion appliances such as furnaces and water heaters can easily go undetected but can be deadly. Combustion testing appliances determines if they are firing correctly and exhausting waste gases properly. Insulation and air sealing work done to the home can also affect the performance of combustion appliances.
Thermal imaging technology allows a skilled auditor to identify areas of thermal malfunction in the building envelope. Thermal imaging can also identify areas of moisture.
