An Energy Audit is an inspection of an existing house for the purpose of determining it’s current energy efficiency and providing recommendations for improvements. We offer two separate levels of energy audits performed by our highly trained inspectors.
You may wish to decide on which type of inspection is right for you.
Level 1 Survey and Walk through. Verbal report and written estimate - $125
Level 2 Door blower test, thermal image scan, a verbal report and written estimate - $225
We will work with you and point out all the options so you can work on your own. You will be given suggestions for practical repairs and upgrades, most simple to correct, that will potentially save hundreds of dollars in future energy costs.
Audit for any Size Home Just $225.
Be comfortable and save money.

A thermal scan or a home energy audit detects the intrusion of either warm or cold entering your home in areas that the insulation is either missing or damaged by moisture. For more information on home energy audits or how a thermal survey can save you or your company money,
When buying a home, use the services of a home inspector. However, ordinary home inspections are all about what is visible and easily accessible to the inspector. We go beyond what an ordinary inspection covers by verifying what you can't see. With our state-of-the-art equipment we can actually "see" inside your walls and tell you if the insulation you are paying for is actually there. We can also spot hidden moisture damage as seen in the image above that can cause major damage or mold and at the very least, render your insulation ineffective.
In the course of an ordinary inspection, an inspector will look in your attic and measure the insulation that is readily accessible and visible. The Energy Professional will survey the entire home for missing or inadequate insulation as well as moisture damage (without touching the insulation) and tell you if the insulation is working. We will also survey your duct work to insure it does not leak and send heated or cooled air where you don't want it.
Included in our survey is a scan of your electrical panel that can spot potential fire hazards. At the very least, you should always insist on a thermal inspection of your electrical panel when buying a home.
After our examination, you may elect to receive a written report that you can use to either have the seller make repairs, or negotiate a lower price to cover repairing the anomalies yourself.
