Inside an Energy Assessment
At your house party, an energy analyst will start with a walk-through of your home. Once this is complete, they’ll conduct several diagnostic tests, which may include:
The analyst uses the data collected to calculate the efficiency of your home and make recommendations. They’ll send you a free assessment report that shows the expected cost of each recommended improvement including any rebates or incentives you qualify for.
What improvements will they recommend?
Recommendations typically include air sealing the trouble spots identified with the infrared camera and adding insulation where it’s currently insufficient – these are typically the least expensive and most effective long-term improvements.
Other recommendations may include duct sealing and tuning up or replacing an old boiler or furnace. Window replacement is rarely recommended because the efficiency gains are low and the cost is high. Lastly, the contractor may also identify smaller do-it-yourself improvements, such as installing a programmable thermostat, low-flow showerheads, and high efficiency lighting. You’re under no obligation to make any changes.
