Frequently Asked Energy Audit Questions:
What is an Energy Audit? An energy audit is a service where an certified energy auditor evaluates the energy efficiency of a home or commercial property to identify ways to improve energy efficiency and decrease energy expenditures. The auditor will use tools like blower doors and infrared cameras along with personal observation to identify problem areas and then create a formal report for the building owner. The audit may also assess the efficiency, physical condition, and programming of mechanical systems such as the heating, ventilation, air conditioning equipment, and thermostat.
Do I have to do everything in the report right away? No. This plan begins with an evaluation of the economic returns of various energy-saving actions and retrofits, and then adds in your plans for painting, siding, remodeling, or additions, and considers your uses for attic and basement space. The plan may take five years to implement, but it can save 50% of your energy usage.
How much to Energy Audits Cost? Energy audits are typically $4-600 for a residence. Large or older homes may be slightly more. For commercial audits, the cost depends on the size and age of the building. Please call Eric Kjelshus Energy Heating and Cooling and speak to one our BPI Certified Auditors for a quote.
