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 contact our Arlington HVAC team.
