Home Energy Audits

How They Work

Thermal Imaging Camera

Home energy audits, also called home energy assessments or surveys, provide a big picture view of a home’s energy consumption. An energy audit can help residents understand how much energy their home uses, where their home may be using energy inefficiently and which problem areas and fixes should be prioritized to save energy, reduced energy costs and improve home comfort. A professional home energy audit should be the first step before making energy-saving home improvements, as well as before adding any renewable energy systems to a home.
