Home Energy Audits & Blower Door Tests in the Greater Richmond Area & Surrounding Counties in Central Virginia
A home energy audit is an assessment that can show you where your home is losing energy (and how you can save money). It uses tools and techniques such as the blower door test, duct testing and infrared imaging to give you an overall picture of your home’s energy efficiency. The largest cost of home ownership other than the mortgage itself is spent on energy bills. Having a home energy assessment not only can save you money, but also helps make your home more comfortable. A home energy assessment can reveal issues such as:
- Air leaks. Air leaks can allow energy to escape from basements, attic and other areas in your home.
- Insufficient insulation levels. If your insulation levels aren’t thick enough, it may be time to re-insulate to help increase efficiency.
- Problems with combustion appliances. A faulty stove, furnace or other combustion appliance can be a significant source of energy loss in your home.
- And more!
An energy audit and energy loss diagnosis covers different areas of your home to determine where energy is being lost. A certified energy analyst will look at the overall picture of your home including, heating and cooling equipment, insulation levels, windows, appliances, lighting and diagnostic tests to determine the best steps to achieve a more efficient home and save the most money.
