The energy audit includes:

• Energy analysis summary after complete examination of all the energy components of your home
• Blower door analysis using a tool to measure air movement to determine if a home is too leaky or too tight
• Heating system safety inspection to include checking the chimney and stove pipe, performing carbon monoxide and draft tests, providing a smoke test reading and delineating your system's efficiency percentage and combustion air requirement
• Thermography (Infrared Scan) that can detect problems with wiring, damaged insulation due to moisture and void wall and attic cavities

SAVES staff will present you with a list of solutions to the problems in your home in order of greatest impact on energy savings and/or health and safety. We will also include an estimate of material costs and predicted benefits and savings for each recommended efficiency measure.

"I wanted to send a note on behalf of my Mom and myself, to express our gratitude for all of the work done recently at our home.  We are both so thankful for the new furnace and insulation, as well as the many other things that were done to make our home warmer in winter months.  It's made a huge difference!"
