What is an Energy Audit?
It is a comprehensive assessment including inspection, survey, and analysis of the flow of energy inside a building. The primary purpose is to check the efficiency of your residential or commercial space so you know if how much is your energy consumption is, because it translates to your electric bill. A responsible real estate owner also wants to be aware whether or not his or her home has an acceptable ecological or carbon footprint.
Energy Audit will help you account for your consumption so you can correct it. It will save you significant amounts of money in the long run. Visual and diagnostic assessments are conducted in your entire home. The audit should be able to look into the building itself, the heating, cooling, and ventilating systems, the appliances, air leakage, humidity and moisture, energy usage of members in the building, trouble areas, and even health issues.
Star Spray Foam offers energy assessments to help you determine how much energy your home consumes and where that energy is going. We have a variety of tools and tests like blower doors and infrared cameras. In some rare instances, the PFT air infiltration measurement technique is used.
However, once the energy is audited, it must not stop there. The very purpose of energy assessment is that you do something about it after getting the results of the diagnosis. The question that must be addressed is: “How can we be more efficient?”
If you know the problem, you can think of an approach on how to solve it. If you don’t know what exactly is the cause of the problem, it’s like you are a blind man expecting to find something you cannot. It will most likely be guesswork which is probably not the best way to go.
