Why Should I Get an Energy Audit?
Smart homeowners know that an energy audit by FLC’s Green Team will save them money now and well into the future. An energy audit, alongside the retrofit work will also:
- Improve indoor air quality
- Increase my home’s comfort
- Increase my home’s safety
- Decrease noise from the outside
- Cut down on pests and rodents
- Increase my home’s resale value
- Lower my carbon footprint and preserve natural resources
Comprehensive Home Assessment Services Include:
- Infrared Camera:
The thermal camera allows our Green Team to find issues in the building’s “envelope” that can’t be seen by the naked eye. This is one of the best tools for diagnosing the areas of your home that lead to comfort issues. We'll let you take control of the camera too!
- Blower Door:
This measures the amount of air leaking in (infiltration) and out (exfiltration) of your home. The infiltration and exfiltration of air in your home removes conditioned air you're paying to heat and cool. This decreases your comfort, making your system work harder, and costing you money. Our Blower Door not only tests the amount of air you are losing, but along with a thermal camera and some intuitive knowledge, it helps us find the areas where you're losing it as well.
- Duct Blaster:
Much like a home, an HVAC duct system also leaks quite a bit of air; 20-40% on average. We pressurize your duct system to verify the amount of its air-loss and the need for improvements.
- Combustion Safety:
Most of this test takes place in the Combustion Appliance Zone “CAZ” where we are assessing the home’s furnace, boiler and hot-water heater to make sure that no harmful by-products of incomplete combustion are lingering in your living space. This is especially important in older homes, as old equipment fails after time and local codes may not have been enforced as they should have!
*The $100 offer is valid for homes under 3,000 square feet with a single combustion appliance zone. Audits of larger homes, or ones with multiple combustion appliance zones may cost more. We'll discuss your home with you to determine the price.
The gentlemen who worked at my house were very helpful, and courteous. They have been very efficient at doing all the tasks necessary to give me a more comfortable place to live. I do thank them whole heartily, and give my appreciation also to Catholic Charities.
