Energy Audits

An energy audit, energy assessment or survey is exactly what you need when looking for ways to improve the energy efficiency of your home.

Why do an Energy Audit?

  • Discover why your home is too hot in summer and too cold in winter
  • Determine if your home suffers from lack of insulation or air leakage
  • Save on Utility costs!

Building Energy has several years of experience providing home energy audits. Thorough audits often use equipment such as blower doors, which measure the extent of leaks in the building envelope, and infrared cameras, which reveal hard-to-detect areas of air infiltration and missing insulation.
