Do you need and Audit?
For some homes, our Standard Audit is sufficient. For others, there can be significant benefit in having a Performance Audit. If you have already had a Standard Audit and are still having energy issues in your home, a Performance Audit could be what you need. Or, if you notice two or more of the following in or around your home, our Energy Audit may be for you. For more information from Xcel Energy on Energy Audits, click here.
Ice dams on the roof.
Moisture or frost in the attic.
Mold or moisture spots on interior walls.
Condensation on your windows.
Stains around ceiling exhaust fan(s).
Cold spots in areas of the house.
Inadequate or older insulation.
We are in the Energy Audit business to reduce your energy usage. You will be credited for any audit fees if we are selected as the contractor to perform the recommended retrofits. Additionally, there are no audit fees if the audit is performed to confirm or “test out” the retrofit work.
