What to Look for in an Energy Audit Company
Making the Right Choice Can Save You a Lot of Money Every Month
Home energy audits are increasingly popular, and the companies claiming to provide them are increasingly common. So how do you know which one to trust?
You aren’t the only one asking that question. We find that a lot of people know why they want a home energy audit. But understanding exactly what the audit is in the first place? That’s a different story.
Like anything in life, the more you know about energy audits, the more you’ll be empowered to make a smart hiring decision for your family.
But by the same token, you don’t have time to take an extended study course in home energy efficiency. That’s why you’re hiring experts in the first place!
And that word is an important one – experts. Don’t settle for anything less.
In this article, we’re going to help you understand just enough about home energy audits “to be dangerous,” and at the same time, we’ll give you quick tips for choosing the very best one.
At the end of the day, we hope you will choose us, but either way, our website is here to help Coloradans understand this emerging, all-important household service.
Every dollar you save on energy costs is a dollar you can invest in your children, your loved ones, your future, and even the simple pleasures of life. All of those things matter, and we are here to help you keep those dollars in your wallet.
Let’s break down what to look for in an energy audit company in Colorado.
Can They Tell You What and Why?
We tell our clients, “don’t be afraid to ask us questions.” We want to answer them. It’s important to us that you understand what we’re doing and how it will help.
That starts with a visit to your home for a full thermal energy audit. Using something called a blower door test, we are able to measure exactly:
- How much energy is leaking out of your house (it’s money flying out the window – almost literally!
- How much insulation exists behind your walls and how it’s holding u
- How well your building envelope is currently performing
Often, the best way to assess a company’s competence is simply to call them and ask what they do and why.
Whether it’s assessing the ductwork in your home, weatherizing, installing new wall and attic insulation, putting in energy-efficient furnaces, or even just changing you over to high-performance light bulbs, we are ready to tell you who we are, what we do, and why we do it!
