Home Energy Audits
Home Energy Audits at J Ferg Energy Pros
The air flow system of your home works similarly to the circulatory system of the heart. Like the heart pumps blood, the goal of home HVAC efficiency is to maximize air flow without overworking your air conditioning unit or encountering costly leaks. The air within your home circulates in what is called an “energy envelope”. When your home is not properly insulated or sealed, regulated air escapes. This causes your home to use more energy to regulate itself again, resulting in higher energy bills. Our energy pro specialists are skilled at finding weaknesses in your energy envelope and will conduct an energy audit for free. Give us a call to schedule your energy audit today! The only thing you have to lose is money wasted on energy bills.
Our Home Energy Audit Process
Blower Door Test
Your home’s energy envelope is tested for leaks through the blower door test and is an important part of the energy audit process. This aptly named test begins with a blower door, or powerful fan that mounts to the frame of an exterior door. The fan pulls air out of the house, lowering the air pressure inside, allowing higher air pressure from the outside to infiltrate your home through the unsealed cracks. These tests determine the air infiltration rate of a building. This allows us to know where the leaks are so we can successfully patch the weak spots in your energy envelope, ultimately saving you money on your utility bill, blocking harmful moisture, annoying drafts, and gauging the level of mechanical ventilation needed to provide an optimal indoor air quality.
Thermographic and Infrared Inspections
While the blower door test is being conducted, infrared technologies can be utilized to identify where the weaknesses in your home’s energy envelope are. These two tests are an ideal pairing; the blower test will isolate trouble spots, while the infrared inspection will enable our specialists to quickly locate them during your home energy audit.
When your air conditioning ducts are not properly sealed, your system has to work harder to maintain the controlled air temperature, drastically reducing its lifespan. This can be avoided by testing the leakage of your ducts with the duct blaster test. Our energy pro experts will utilize specialized equipment to measure the level of leakage within your ducts. Ensuring that regulated air isn’t leaking into your attic or crawl spaces is a positive step in the direction of home efficiency.
Our energy efficiency pros also offer other specific energy efficiency tests as needed and upon request during your free home energy audit. Savings vary. Find out why in the seller’s fact sheet on R-values. Higher R-values mean greater insulating power.
