Home and Commercial Energy Audits 
 

What to expect in a whole-house energy audit

What sets us apart from most auditors is the time we spend getting to know both you and your home or office building. We are BPI (Building Performance Industry) certified Building Analysts. We view your living/working space, your building and its appliances, and your lifestyle as a holistic system to accurately analyze the unique energy profile of your home or business. We use that deep analysis to create a targeted, prioritized report that acts as a blueprint for energy efficient upgrades and repairs, focusing first and foremost on low-hanging fruit (i.e. least cost with highest payback). The report's recommendations provide a clear roadmap to accomplish one or all of the following:
1. Lower energy costs
2. Lower carbon footprint
3. Increase home comfort and safety
While we're onsite, we look deeply into your building's structure to find opportunities for upgrades and repairs that will increase the efficiency and performance. We have extensive knowledge with how buildings of all shapes and types are constructed and can therefore target the areas needing attention with accuracy. Auditors who do not have this extensive building knowledge cannot provide a complete assesment of your building. Our thorough, on-premises analysis provides a thorough picture of the repairs, upgrades, and replacements necessary to get the most efficiency from your residence or business. Average savings for most clients is 25%. In some cases though, clients can save up to 50% by simply following the recommendations in the report.

Using a blower door and manometer, we can determine the level of leakage occuring in your building and determine appropriate courses of action
 
We know that any good energy audit must include occupant behavior consultating. You simply cannot buy your way to an energy-efficient home and lifestyle. This final component of the audit is what sets us apart from the others. Successful energy efficiency and literacy begins with education. Without knowing the intricacies and interrelatedness of all factors of energy it is impossible to fully embody the processes necessary to not only reduce your energy bills, but also to guide others along the path of sustainability to enable our global society to recover from the disastrous effects we've put upon our environment due to energy over-consumption. We enable positive, beneficial actions that homeowners can take now and in the future to reduce energy and resource wasting and to reinforce long-term energy saving behavior that will last for our future generations.
 
Our customers are always pleased. And we know you will also be pleased with how much energy can be saved by simply tweaking a building's infrastructure in the straightforward and targeted manner outlined in the report. We also know you will rest more easily knowing you have taken the steps to reduce your carbon footprint. And we know that after you have used our services, you will want to refer us to your friends, family, and co-workers. This is why we offer a 10% referral fee ($20 or $40, depending on the service purchased) just for referring us! Your word or mouth is valuable!
