What is an Energy Audit?

An Energy Audit is the first step to assess how much energy your home or business consumes, and to evaluate what measures you can take to make your home or business more Energy Efficient. This is done by performing a room by room examination of a structure, as well as a thorough examination of past utility bills. We perform Sacramento Energy Audits, San Jose Energy Audits, Oakland Energy audits, and surrounding California areas.

Energy audits will show you problems that may, when corrected, save you significant amounts of money over time. During the audit, you can pinpoint where you are losing energy. Once we have set goals to improve your homes energy efficiency issues, you may choose to have our highly skilled green building contractors begin to put these Energy Audit saving solutions in place.

We crawl into the smallest of spaces, including attics and basements, to inspect ducts and pipes and determine where insulation is needed.

The California Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Program provides a reliable way to estimate and compare the energy efficiency of California homes and identify wise energy saving improvements. Whether you are buying or selling a home, or staying in your current residence, knowing your home energy rating will help you choose smart energy upgrades and investments that will save you in energy costs, improve your home comfort, and protect the environment. As buyers become more aware of the benefits of an energy-efficient home, homes with a favorable home energy rating may be more appealing to buyers.
