Keep reading to learn more about what an energy consult or energy audit tells you about your home and why an energy audit is worth it any time of the year.
Why Do You Need an Energy Audit?
If you want to improve your home’s comfort and energy efficiency, Evergreen Home Performance can help you uncover your home’s inefficiencies and show you the best places to make improvements.
What’s Included in an Energy Audit?
Before a comprehensive energy audit is performed, Evergreen Home Performance will conduct a free hour-long energy consult to reveal the ways in which you can:
Make your home more comfortable
Improve your home’s indoor air quality
Save money on your energy bills
Make your home more durable
Increase your home’s value
Reduce your carbon footprint
With the results of your energy consult, you’ll get a big-picture understanding of your home’s energy problems. We’ll also outline our preliminary recommendations for home improvements including insulation, air sealing, basement encapsulation, and more.
If you want to move forward with the improvements, we’ll then complete your energy audit to kick off your project and help you qualify for Efficiency Maine’s generous rebates! This includes:
A visual inspection of your home’s interior and exterior
Thermal imaging to detect air leaks and gaps in insulation
A blower door test to measure your home’s airtightness
Health and safety testing, including carbon monoxide testing
We use energy audit diagnostic testing to confirm our project design and safety considerations and ensure that your home upgrades deliver the maximum benefit for your family.
When your project is complete, we’ll finish with a test-out, which includes a second blower door test to verify that our work has made a difference.
