Seal Air Leaks
Air sealing is very important for reducing energy costs and comfort. Simply put, air leakage in the thermal boundary of your home let’s conditioned air escape, and outside air to get in. After an energy audit, you will know exactly where the leaks are in your home. You will have pictures of it! Thermal Imaging we perform creates an image based on temperature differences.
During your energy audit the insulation in critical areas of your home are checked and evaluated. The type of insulation, it’s condition, R Value, and if it is adequate will be in your report, along with any recommendations for improvement.
Ventilation is also evaluated. Bath exhaust fans, proper venting, are important to maintain indoor air quality and prevent costly and harmful repairs due to mold and moisture conditions.
Your Heating and Cooling System
You want to make sure your heating system, whether it is a furnace or a heat pump, is working properly and efficiently. During your energy audit, your HVAC system will be evaluated and what, if any improvements need to be made. If you have a furnace or heat pump, make sure you are changing the filter every month or so.
