How a Home Energy Audit Works

An Energy Audit is an assessment of how much energy your home consumes, combined with suggestions on how you can make your home more energy-efficient. An audit shows you where your house is losing energy and how your insulation, heating and cooling systems, electrical systems and appliances, could be made more efficient.



Blower Door






A blower door uses a calibrated fan to measure how much air a home leaks. The blower door mounts into an exterior door frame. The fan pulls air out of the house, lowering the air pressure inside. Outside air then flows into the house through all unsealed cracks and openings. The amount of fan pressure required by the fan to maintain the test pressure tells the auditor how much leakage the house has.
