What is an Energy Audit? An energy audit is an evaluation of all of the components of your building which use energy, with a description of upgrade options and predicted savings.
We will inspect the following areas during your energy audit:
- Air-tightness measurement with a “blower door” test.
- An infrared camera inspection enables us to pinpoint air leaks and missing insulation.
- Combustion safety testing of your heating system and/or water heater. We measure carbon monoxide in the exhaust, determine whether exhaust is spilling into your home, and check for natural gas leaks.
- Insulation levels in walls, ceilings, basement and/or crawl space
- Windows and doors
- Heating and cooling system
- Water heater
You’ll get an energy audit report which describes what we find, with infrared pictures and tips on how to make your building more comfortable and efficient. Each house is different so an energy audit is a great way to find out which improvements make the most sense.
How much does an energy audit cost? After the $200 Xcel energy audit rebate** is applied, $195 to $275 is typical, depending on home size and location. Smaller homes may be a bit less. Add $200 if the home does not use Xcel Energy for the primary heating fuel source, as these homes won’t qualify for rebates. Also, there is a $150 tax credit starting with the 2023 tax year, so you can claim that when you file 2023 taxes in 2024.
How long does it take to do an energy audit? 2-3 hours is typical, but large homes may take longer.
