What Is An Energy Audit?
A professional energy audit gives you a thorough picture of where your home or rental property is losing energy and what you can do to save money. Our energy tests include: Blower Door Tests and Infrared Thermography Evaluations by our BPI Certified professionals.
Before our energy auditor visits your property, make a list of any existing problems such as condensation and uncomfortable or drafty rooms. Have copies or a summary of the property’s yearly energy bills. Walk along with the auditor as they work, and ask questions. The auditor may use equipment to detect sources of energy loss, such as blower doors, infrared cameras, furnace efficiency meters, and surface thermometers.
To achieve optimum results, there needs to be a “whole-house” approach that looks at your house as a system which is called an Energy Audit. EcoMaster will provide a professional energy audit which gives you a thorough picture of where your home is losing energy and what you can do to save money.
Step 1: Specialty diagnostic equipment and tests are used to pinpoint areas needing improvements such as air leaks, insufficient insulation, and excessive moisture or condensation on the outside and inside of your home. These tests may include a blower door test, duct leakage, combustion safety, and an infrared inspection.
Step 2: We will provide a detailed report that includes color photos, infrared images, and recommended cost effective energy efficient retrofits.
Step 3: EcoMaster is THE qualified contractor to repair and resolve these issues.
Blower door tests determine the amount of air leakage which allows moisture to penetrate your property and make it uncomfortable. It can be responsible for as much as 40% of your heating and cooling costs! We will use the latest pressurization technology to find the air leaks through doors, walls, windows, ceilings, floors, attic and crawl spaces.
