An energy assessment takes a comprehensive whole-house approach to improve your home’s energy efficiency, increasing overall comfort and saving you money on energy bills. Our Building Performance Institute (BPI) Certified experts start with a Home Performance Energy Assessment available through all of the major Pennsylvania Utilities.
A home assessment is similar to having a physical exam by your doctor when you don’t feel well. The physician gathers information by performing a series of tests, provides a diagnosis and recommends a plan to help you feel better.
The energy assessment is a review of the current condition of your home using state-of-the-art tests, including thermal imaging and a blower door test to evaluate the air leakage of your home.
A complete report shows your home’s energy usage across its heating, cooling, electrical and hot water systems, and how much of this consumption is wasted. It includes recommendations on ways to increase your home’s energy usage through insulation, air sealing, HVAC upgrades and other energy-saving methods. You choose which upgrades are best for you, your home and your budget.
Benefits of an Energy Assessment:
The best part is that many rebates and incentives are available through your utility company to possibly offset the cost.
Our team checks your windows, door frames, attics, ceilings, walls, heating, and cooling systems to pinpoint every area of energy loss.
We discuss our findings with you and determine the best course of action to improve efficiency.
Next we will make the repairs and improvements that you and our team have discussed. Any work we do in your home is to improve your home's comfort, health and safety, durability, and efficiency, while saving you money and energy.
We will perform a secondary audit to validate that our work achieved the desired results, making your home more energy efficient.
