What is a Home Energy Assessment? It begins with a thorough inspection
of your home featuring Blower Door and Ductblaster tests. These tests
are designed to measure air leakage to and from your living area and your
ductwork. Using digital thermography and other methods we also determine
where leaks are occurring. Attic insulation and ventilation are evaluated.
Lighting is inspected for efficiency and heat generation. Windows and
doors are evaluated for efficiency and integrity. The entire inspection
takes between two and four hours, depending on the size and complexity
of your home and on our findings.
Once the testing phase is completed we feed the data into a computer program
to determine what improvements should be made and what energy savings
you can expect from each one. These findings are then presented to the
homeowner during an in-home appointment.
Sound like your kind of program? We certainly hope so! Our Captain Comfort
program is on schedule to be rolled out in mid-August, 2011. If you have
questions in the meantime, please
