Home Energy Audit
A home energy audit can pay for itself with what you will save in reduced energy costs.
Northcoast Energy Masters’ Home Energy Audit makes it easy to discover where your home is leaking hundreds of dollars in wasted energy.
Our Home Energy Audit identifies your home’s energy wasters, such as:
- Drafty windows & doors
- Insufficient insulation
- Humidity problems
- Poor attic ventilation
- Inadequate or old, ineffective insulation
- Undetected bypasses in wall cavities
Find Out How Much More Energy Efficient Your Home Could Be.
A Home Energy Audit is the first step to pinpoint where your home is losing energy. Our professional auditors use a variety of techniques and equipment to determine the energy efficiency of a structure.
Your Home Energy Assessment begins with an inspection of your home’s attic, insulation, doors, windows, furnace, appliances and other key areas. We also use equipment such as a blower door, which measures the extent of leaks in the building envelope, and an infrared camera, which reveals hard-to-detect areas of air infiltration and missing insulation. Knowing where to insulate is as important as knowing that you need to insulate.
Every home is different. Rather than recommend a standard set of actions, our Home Energy Audit evaluates each home individually before offering a diagnosis for your home.
The diagnosis may consist of:
- A general visual inspection of your home
- A blower door test using calibrated fan and pressure gauges which are computer programmed
- An infrared camera to identify areas of your home deficient of proper insulation
Based on the results of your individual Home Energy Audit, our professional will offer a list of cost-effective solutions. The results may help uncover some simple ways to reduce your household’s energy consumption. It may also uncover a need to replace your windows, doors and add additional insulation.
