Energy Audits

To perform this type of inspection, the inspector must own a thermographic camera which he will use to evaluate the soundness of a structure. Auditors may discover energy infiltration due to various causes, i.e. thermo-bridging, lack of insulation and ventilation sipping through cavities not properly sealed. Today’s new homes must meet a very strenuous standard. The table below provides the recommended changes per hour per living spaces:

The best way to accomplish this task is by having an independent door blower test done before doing the energy audit.
