A home energy audit is the first step on the path toward a more comfortable, more affordable, healthier home. Using a variety of high-tech, state-of-the-art tools, we're able to identify the key areas where your home is wasting energy, and recommend the most cost-effective improvements for maximum comfort, minimum energy bills, and optimal indoor air quality and building health and safety.

Our approach in conducting home energy audits is to take a comprehensive, whole-house assessment of the home, which distinguishes our "whole-house energy audit" from the "clipboard audits" offered by many utilities, box stores, and companies that offer a discounted audit as a means to sell products or services.

Our whole-house energy audit looks at the building envelope (which inludes all the components that make up your home's outer shell, including windows, doors, insulation levels, and the level of air leakage in between building materials); all combustion equipment including boilers, furnaces and water heaters; and the movement of air within the home to ensure that the air you and your family are breathing is fresh, healthy and safe. During the audit, we use an infrared camera to identify air leakage and deficient insulation, a blower door to measure the rate of air infiltration in the home, and a duct blaster test to determine whether your ducts are well-sealed, among other tools.

Thermal imaging can be fun, too.


Infrared diagnostics, or thermal imaging, are an essential component of a thorough, whole-house energy audit. Analyzing each component of a home that is prone to air leakage, we are able to assess with our state-of-the-art infrared cameras where the most substantial air leaks are occuring, and determine where insulation in walls and attics has settled over time, was missing to begin with, or where it may have been improperly installed in the first place. 

The insights given by a thermal scan during a home energy audit allow us to target the most cost-effective potential improvements to your home -- from an energy standpoint, comfort standpoint, and cost standpoint -- so your home upgrades achieve the greatest Return on Investment possible. 

These infrared images, taken during a whole-house energy audit, are intended to shine some light on the infrared diagnostic process, as well as give you an idea of where energy waste most frequently occurs in typical North American homes.
