Do you know why you need an energy audit on your home?

Most likely, your home was built at a time when energy costs were relatively low and little consideration was given to energy efficiency. The good news is that we now have far superior materials, techniques and understanding, of how our homes can become efficient. Older Homes Save More.

Due to the natural settling of the ground, exposure to the elements, deterioration of building materials, and the development of modern energy efficient materials, older homes are less energy efficient than newer homes – so owners of older homes can benefit even more from a home energy audit by a Certified Energy Auditor.

If your home is more than 25 years old, you will save an average of 35% on your energy bills. And if your home is more than 50 years old, that percentage goes up to 38 %. Even if your home is just over 10 years old, there is a good chance that it's losing energy.

Kansas City Home Energy Audit Process

What happens at my home energy audit?

An energy audit is the critical starting point in understanding the correlation between how much energy your home is currently using and how much it should be using. A thorough energy audit, like those provided by GreenWise Consulting (Kansas City Certified Energy Auditor), will provide a cost/benefit analysis for every savings opportunity identified. Once the audit is completed, you will receive a detailed summary of the results. Your report will highlight any problems or opportunities to save energy we encountered; along with recommendations on what actions you should take to correct them.

Here are the simple steps to the GreenWise Consulting Energy Audit process:

Step 1 Client Interview
During your interview, our Kansas City Certified Auditor collects as much background information as possible about your home. No one knows the daily lifestyle and running of your home like you do. If there are any existing problems that you are aware of, they will be noted for further inspection.

Step 2 Outdoor Inspection
The outdoor inspection examines all the exterior aspects of the house. A thorough assessment is made of the doors, windows, overhangs, skylights and outdoor cooling equipment. We measure the entire exterior of your home from walls to windows and doors. This allows us to recreate a model of your home using sophisticated software to make recommendations for improvements. We also take note of what is adjacent to the perimeter of the home. This includes looking at your home’s orientation to the Sun and any vegetation that affects shade and windbreak.

Step 3 Indoor Inspection
The examination of this area includes: thermostat, furnace, water heater, basement wall and band joist insulation, ducts for sealing and insulation, window sealing and locking and glazing, weather stripping for doors and windows, and overall character of all appliances. We enter the attic and examine the attic hatch seals, canned lighting, attic insulation, and ventilation and sealing of perforations in the ceiling below the attic.

Step 4 Blower Door Test
The blower door test entails the use of specialized diagnostic equipment to measure the air tightness of the house. The blower door test uses a powerful calibrated fan to depressurize the entire house and then check the rate at which air reenters the building through unsealed cracks and other openings in the building envelope. This data is collected and used to establish how much of the total air inside your home leaks out and is replaced with outside air every hour. During this test, our trained auditor will be able to walk you throughout your home pointing out air leakage while explaining why it is leaking. By correcting the air leakage pathways uncovered by the blower door test, we can reduce the uncomfortable drafts, reduce utility costs and provide healthier indoor air quality.

Step 5 Review Results
Your Kansas City Certified Energy Auditor will review the preliminary findings with you, giving you a general idea as to what improvements you can make to your home. Within one week, you’ll receive a more detailed report by email. Your audit summary will identify problems to be corrected along with possibilities for energy savings. Your audit report will have recomm1endations for specific improvements to make, along with an estimated cost of doing the work, and how long those improvements will take to pay back your investment through energy savings. By having a professional Kansas City Certified Energy Auditor perform your home energy audit, and by making qualifying energy efficiency improvements, you can qualify for a number of rebates and tax incentives offered by the federal and state government, and local utility companies. GreenWise Consulting Energy Audit Services will detail which of these programs you would qualify for so you can make an informed, organized decision on what actions to take next.
