Weatherization – Home Energy Assessment
Are your heating bills high due to lack of adequate insulation, improperly sealed windows and doors?
A home energy assessment can help identify the areas that need to be sealed/insulated to protect you from the cold of winter and heat of summer. Our certified building analyst will perform a thorough energy assessment to measure the extent of leaks in the building envelope and use infrared cameras to find hard-to-detect areas of air infiltration and missing insulation. You will also receive information on how various energy-saving upgrade options interact with each other and list of efficiency upgrades that are most appropriate for your home.
