At SolarWerks, we streamlined and simplified the process of conducting household energy audits. Our group of knowledgeable energy analysts follows these three simple steps:
Analyzing previous energy use: We prefer to look back over the past two years’ worth of energy usage to conduct an accurate home energy audit. These documents provide our staff with a timeline to work with. Trends can be identified, and we can determine when and where your home’s energy use increased.
Examining current energy consumption. We inspect your property using these records to look for potential energy leaks. Doors, windows, and attics are common points of energy loss. Appliances may also consume energy at an unusual rate.
Recommending corrective measures: After inspecting your home, we make suggestions to improve your energy consumption by making prospective repairs. For instance, if we discover that your windows have air leaks, which account for 30% of a home’s energy loss, we would advise sealing them. To help you decide which repair is to be handled first, we also organize our suggestions by their level of importance.
