Among the things a home energy auditor will assess are the following:
The auditor will look at your home, how your household runs, the type of equipment you have and how all these factors impact each other. For instance, is your HVAC system big enough/too big for the home’s square footage so that it’s not working efficiently? Is your ductwork installed properly, and does it have leaks and breaks? Do you have enough insulation and is it the right R-value? Is it properly installed in the attic, the walls and crawl spaces? Is your home in need of caulking and weatherstripping? Would your family’s needs be better served by a programmable thermostat than the digital model you currently have?
To help determine the answers to the above questions and others, the auditor will perform two basic tests:
Once these tests are performed and the auditor has a complete picture of where your efficiency is weakest, you’ll have a better idea where to spend your money on improvements.
