1) EXTERIOR INSPECTION

Assess grading, exhaust venting, roof venting, structural issues, gas leak detection at the meter (as applicable), condition of heat pump or AC unit, paint/caulking/ flashing condition, and any potential points of water intrusion.

2) INTERIOR INSPECTION

Basement/crawlspace/attic inspection for signs of moisture, duct condition and design, air leakage pathways, insulation levels; inspection of windows, bath fans, walls, and fireplaces; gas line leak detection.

3) COMBUSTION SAFETY TESTING

For natural draft combustion furnace/boiler/water heater/kitchen stove. We test to see if combustion appliances are operating properly, and exhausting as they are meant to exhaust. Sometimes, not all is as it appears, and your appliances may be producing high levels of carbon monoxide or drafting into the house instead out, particularly when fans are on inside the home.

4) FURNACE/BOILER/WATER HEATER EFFICIENCY ANALYSIS

To determine just how efficient these devices are.

5) BLOWER DOOR TEST

With this test, a fan is set up in an exterior door, and air is drawn out of the house to determine the overall home air leakage level, compare that to what is considered a healthy level, and to determine where air is leaking in and out of the house.

6) INFRARED CAMERA ANALYSIS

Use infrared technology to see through walls and ceilings to pinpoint exactly where cold/hot air is entering/exiting home, evaluate insulation levels, and identify moisture in the home structure.

7) BASIC DUCT LEAKAGE ASSESSMENT

To determine the general extent of duct leakage and if mitigation is warranted to stop heating and cooling loss. (Separate duct testing can be performed to determine exact source and leakage level for an additional fee).

8) AUDIT REPORT

You get all of this effort along with written observations/recommendations in a detailed report with pictures.

Testimonials

The crew did an excellent job. Everyone was so professional (on time, clean workspace, well mannered) they exceeded my expectations. I'm no longer using my dehumidifier and the air on the upper level is soooo much better.
