What Is a Virtual Home Energy Assessment?
A home energy assessment is a room-by-room assessment of your home. A professional inspects your appliances, insulation, and ventilation. They determine how much energy each room consumes and where the energy goes.
An auditor can employ several pieces of equipment. For example, they can use infrared cameras to determine where heat leaves through your walls, doors, and windows.
You can ask your auditors to focus on particular rooms. In general, many auditors like to examine the basement and attic. 85 percent of a house’s heat loss occurs through the attic.
An auditor may ask you questions about your energy usage. They may ask about how you set your thermostat and live in each room of your house.
The assessment is no-cost and takes a couple of hours or less depending on the size of your home. You can accompany the auditor as they do their evaluation and ask questions along the way. An auditor can give you their findings verbally or in a written document so you have something to refer back to.
In some cases, the auditor may be able to provide products like smart power strips that day. Talk to them about any additional services they can provide. Most products they recommend come at no cost.
