Home Energy Assessments
A home energy assessment, also known as a home energy audit, is the first step to assess how much energy your home consumes and to evaluate what measures you can take to make your home more energy efficient. An assessment will show you problems that may, when corrected, save you significant amounts of money over time.
During the assessment, you can pinpoint where your house is losing energy. Energy assessments also determine the efficiency of your home's heating and cooling systems. An assessment may also show you ways to conserve hot water and electricity. You can perform a simple energy assessment yourself, or have a professional energy auditor carry out a more thorough assessment.

Did you know that mold and mildew that grow easily in poorly insulated homes can lead to allergies, asthma and respiratory problems?
If your home has water damage, mold and mildew can grow in as little as 24 hours. You can protect your home by ventilating and sealing off air leaks to prevent humidity from collecting. Simple home energy audits can detect where these two potential problems can grow or are already growing.
