What You’ll Need to Complete a Virtual Home Assessment
There are a few things you’ll need to have handy or installed on your smart phone before a virtual home assessment begins with your certified home energy auditor.
1. Must be able to use the Zoom app on a mobile device
Zoom is a video conferencing app that the auditors at Home Energy Medics will use during your assessment. Downloading the app is free for both iPhones and Android phones, and will allow us to see you and hear you while you show us around your house.
2. Must be able to upload pictures via Google Photos or Dropbox
During the course of your virtual home assessment, we’ll likely ask you to take pictures of particular areas of the inside and outside of your house, which we can later use for reference when the assessment is over. You’ll then send us those pictures via one of the above photo sharing apps, both of which are also free to download.
3. Must have access to and be able to use a tape measure, screwdriver, and flashlight
Don’t worry—we’re aren’t going to be sending you crawling around on your hands and knees in your crawlspace. But we may ask you to shine a light in a darkened area of your home or to take some quick measurements that can help us get a good sense of the dimensions and layout of your home.
4. Must be able to access your attic and be willing to go in the attic (at least enough to show us the space) on the Zoom app
Even if it’s just poking your head up into your attic and shining your flashlight around while you hold your phone up, we’ll need to see some of the “out of the way” areas of your house in order to give you our best recommendations and advice on potential home improvements.
