An energy audit is an assessment that looks at your current energy consumption, occupant behavior and other factors to identify measures that can be taken to improve the comfort and increase the energy efficiency of your home. Audits are important for homeowners because they provide solutions
based on proven building science. They find the root cause of problems, rather than just treating symptoms.
A typical audit includes an interior and exterior walk through, blower door testing and homeowner interview and can take from 1 to 4 hours to complete. The assessment also incorporates thermal camera imaging and utility bill review. The homeowner will be provided with a report that includes the auditor’s
notes, diagnostic results and a prioritized list of improvement measures based on health and safety issues, comfort, and overall cost-benefit.
