Professional Energy Audits

Professional energy audits go into great detail. The energy auditor will do a room-by-room examination of the residence, as well as a thorough examination of past utility bills.

Our professional energy audits will include a blower door test. Most will also include a thermo graphic scan. A home energy audit is the first step to assess how much energy your home consumes and to evaluate what measures you can take to make your home more energy efficient.

An audit will show you problems that may, when corrected, save you significant amounts of money over time.

Home Energy Audits

During the audit, you can pinpoint where your house is losing energy. Audits also determine the efficiency of your home's heating and cooling systems. An audit may also show you ways to conserve hot water and electricity. *You may be eligible for Tax credits or Rebates by having a professional energy auditor carry out a thorough audit

Our professional auditor uses a variety of techniques and equipment to determine the energy efficiency of a structure. Thorough audits often use equipment such as blower doors, which measure the extent of leaks in the building envelope, and infrared cameras, which reveal hard-to-detect areas of air infiltration and missing insulation.

Preparing for an Energy Audit

Before our energy auditor visits your house, make a list of any existing problems such as condensation and uncomfortable or drafty rooms. Have copies or a summary of the home's yearly energy bills. (Your utility can get these for you.) Auditors use this information to establish what to look for during the audit. The auditor first examines the outside of the home to determine the size of the house and its features (i.e., wall area, number and size of windows).

The auditor then will analyze the residents' behavior:

  • Is anyone home during working hours?
  • What is the average thermostat setting for summer and winter?
  • How many people live here?
  • Is every room in use?

 

Your answers may help uncover some simple ways to reduce your household's energy consumption. Walk through your home with the auditors as they work, and ask questions. They may use equipment to detect sources of energy loss, such as blower doors, infrared cameras, furnace efficiency meters, and surface thermometers.*

Energy News
  • Obama Signs Tax Deal
  • Obama Signs Tax DealOn December 17th, President Obama signed into law the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization and Job Creation Act of 2010.  Included in the package were a variety of energy efficiency and renewable energy tax provisions that would have expired at the end of this year.
  • 1603 Renewable Energy Grants: The agreement extends the 1603 program, which is helping to support tens of thousands of jobs in the wind and solar industries by providing cash grants to commercial entities valued at up to 30% of projected costs.  Since its passage in 2009, the L.A Times has reported that this program help create 100,000 jobs and secure $18 billion in funding.
  • Energy-efficient new homes: The bill extends through 2011 the “Section 45L” tax credit of up to $2,000 for builders of residential homes that are more energy efficient than comparable homes.
  • Energy-efficient appliances: The bill extends through 2011 and modifies standards for the “Section 45M” tax credit for US-based manufacturers of energy-efficient clothes washers, dishwashers and refrigerators produced in the U.S. The extension increases efficiency standards for these products.
  • Energy-efficient existing homes: The bill helps homeowners lower their energy bills by extending through 2011 the “Section 25C” tax credit for energy-efficient retrofits to existing homes. This credit returned to its pre-ARRA levels, allowing taxpayers to claim up to 10% of the cost (max $500) for improvements that make their homes more energy efficient like installing better-insulated windows and doors. The extension increases efficiency standards for oil boilers and furnaces and gas boilers up to 95%

 

It is great to see the extension of these tax credits and grants for the 2011 year. Of course, reliable, long term national support for clean energy are needed to help businesses and homeowners make better investment choices and to help the industry thrive. The National SAVE Energy Coalition will continue to support such efforts as they develop in 2011.

 

President Obama & Climate Legislation – In his speech after the release of the Clean Energy jobs and Oil Company Accountability Act, Senator Reid lamented the lack of support for a comprehensive climate and energy bill, shouldering blame primarily on Republicans for not having any Senators that would support such a bill. The Senator freely admitted that his bill does NOT contain the provisions necessary to ramp up alternative energy and break our dependence on foreign oil and vowed to continue fighting for a comprehensive bill. Similarly, President Obama remarked that Reid’s energy bill “is an important step in the right direction, but I want to emphasize that it's only the first step." The President continued, "I intend to keep pushing for broader reform, including climate legislation, because if we've learned anything from the tragedy in the Gulf, it's that our current energy policy is unsustainable." Due to the lack of time and gridlock in the Senate, it is unlikely that a climate bill that prices carbon will pass this year, and if Republicans make gains in the Senate it will likely lower the possibility of passage in the near-term.
