Energy Audit Services
It’s time for a Home Energy Audit when you walk through the house and feel a draft here and a heat spot there, when people with allergies or asthma start sneezing after being in your home for a short time, or when you have to turn the heat or AC up higher and higher but it’s never warm (or cool) enough.
An Energy Audit analyzes how much energy you are using, what it is being used for, and targets areas where you can lower costs, improve efficiency reduce your carbon footprint, and improve you indoor air quality.
After our audit — which typically takes 4-5 hours — you’ll understand why you can or cannot find an acceptable comfort level in your home, and we’ll give you the information you need to correct the issues. Every home and family is different. That’s why we treat the whole house as a system, just as your physician considers all the systems and organs of your body before making a diagnosis. Every component of your home interacts with the others, and all need to be addressed as one system. We use only state-of-the-art equipment, continue to take advanced training, and provide you with a high quality, professional energy audit.
We use a variety of tools to determine what needs to be done, based on what is best for you and your home – not what’s best for some contractor’s pocketbook.
Educating you as a homeowner is just as important to us as conducting the energy audit itself — maybe even more so. We take the time to explain how the whole house works as a system, and how each component affects the efficiency of all the other components.
With this information, you will understand why your energy bills are so high, why the temperature in some rooms is different than in others, why moisture can be a problem that leads to mold, what affect your home might have on your health and why you cannot find the level of comfort you desire in your home.
When comparing pricing, be sure to ask competitors what they are charging to “test out.” Testing Out procedures are included in CDC Energy Consultants’ costs, but that is not the case will all auditors. To make sure you are comparing apples to apples, print out our Audit Checklist.
