Home Energy Audit
A home energy audit is an inspection and evaluation of your home’s current energy efficiency. Cool Max performs home energy audits to examine not only your HVAC equipment, but also your entire house. The audit starts with an initial consultation. Like a doctor, the auditor will ask a series of questions about problems that you may have noticed in your home. The auditor will inspect your heating & cooling equipment, your duct system, and even the current insulation levels in your home. The auditor will use the infiltrometer blower door testing equipment that was developed by the US Dept. of Energy along with a digital air capture flow hood. This high-tech testing equipment allows the auditor to find energy wasting air leaks in your home as well as within your duct system. Once the test is completed the auditor will analyze the results and make recommendations for improving your home’s energy efficiency.
Do you want to pay to heat and cool your attic?
Every month you could be paying to heat and/or cool your attic or crawlspace because of air leaks in your duct system, and not even know it. Since air is invisible, how can you find out if this is happening at your house? Simple – get your house tested. A home energy audit can show you how to save thousands of dollars by making your house more energy efficient.
US Department of Energy Statistics
The US Department of Energy reports that “typical duct systems lose between 25% to 40% of the heating and cooling energy …from duct leaks.”
