What is a Home Energy Audit?

Our Home Energy Audit lets you know exactly where your house is losing energy and what you need to do to make it more efficient. This evaluation will address all of your energy concerns.

Our Home Energy Audit basically starts with us examining the exterior of your home such as your windows and doors where we look to identify if you have any visual leaks, or if you have any solar heat gain issues. At this time we are also looking at your mechanical equipment, such as your air conditioners, water heaters, furnaces, etc. If weather permits, we will also conduct an infrared scan to pinpoint specific areas in your home that might be missing or lacking in insulation. To determine exactly how leaky your home is, we then set up a large fan in your main door, which is called a blower door. With the blower door running, we then test your duct work for leaks with what we refer to as a pressure pan and manometer. And finally, we get to crawl into your attic space to identify any visual duct leakage or duct design and configuration issues. While we are up in your attic, we also examine your insulation to determine, what type of insulation is there, how much is there, but mainly, and most importantly, if it's installed properly. We will also take a look at your energy usage to determine where you are using energy the most.

A Complete Home Energy Analysis Includes the Following:

  • Utility Bill Analysis- to determine your usage patterns and what type of user of energy you are in your home
  • Combustion Appliance Testing- to determine that carbon monoxide levels in your gas appliance flues are within the acceptable range, and to ensure your gas appliances are venting properly

  • Thermograph Scan (when applicable)- to determine if you have any insulation deficiencies or air leaks that are inaccessible, and to visualize moisture issues in your home

  • Total Home Leakage Test- to measure how leaky your home is and to locate the leaks
  • Duct Leakage Test- to measure how leaky your duct system is, and locate possible disconnects in your duct system
  • Duct Design Evaluation- to determine that your duct system is properly designed, with proper placement and configuration of ductwork to ensure your home is achieving the maximum air flow it should be
  • Static Pressure Test- to determine that the amount of air moving through your duct system is adequate and the pressures in that system are not too high, or too low
  • Room Pressure Testing- to determine if your rooms have pressure imbalances when you shut the doors to individual bedrooms. These types of problems can create high bills, but also extremely dusty homes
  • Equipment Efficiency Evaluation- to calculate the existing efficiency of your AC system
  • Window Analysis- to determine if you have any solar heat gain issues that could be addressed through several shading options
  • Water Heating- to evaluate your water heating system and temperature settings
  • Insulation and Air Barrier Evaluation- to determine what type of insulation is in your attic, how much insulation is in your attic, but mainly to determine if that insulation is installed properly or not
  • Lighting Efficiency Evaluation- to look for opportunities for you to replace your existing incandescent lighting with CFLs or LEDs
  • Pool Efficiency Evaluation- to identify opportunities for you to reduce your pool run time costs

Did you know that a quarter of the energy consumed by Arizona homes is used for cooling? Many Phoenix-area homeowners are often surprised to discover that houses of a similar size consume far less energy than their own, especially on heating and cooling.
