The home energy audit is one of the most effective tests available for Southeastern PA homeowners who are looking to boost home efficiency. Also referred to as an “energy assessment,” an energy audit is the first step in determining just how much energy the home is consuming and how this energy is being consumed. This information allows us to pinpoint exactly where energy loss is occurring, resulting in a tailored action plan to solve whatever issues are discovered.

After a home energy audit, the work we perform will save you money, enhance comfort levels and improve your home’s indoor air quality.

How It Works

The term “energy audit” may sound complicated or confusing, but it’s actually a straightforward process. Think of it like a trip to the mechanic, except instead of your car being the focus, all attention falls on your home. A trained energy auditor will conduct a room-by-room inspection and analysis of your home, isolating any “problem areas” that might pop up in the process.

A typical energy audit may include a number of different steps, including:

  • Analysis of home and utility data, including your energy bill and installed equipment

  • Survey of operating conditions

  • Inspection of HVAC and lighting

  • Blower door tests to identify air sealing issues

  • Thermographic scan of home to show where insulation is needed

These processes allow us to gather the information we need in order to make informed recommendations about work that can get your home back to peak performance quickly and effectively.

Our “Whole Home” Approach

At Green Stone, we pride ourselves on our “whole home” approach, which gets applied to every job we handle. Your home is a complex amalgamation of systems, all of which much work together to create a comfortable, efficient environment. Our knowledge of how the home performs as a unit gives us an effective baseline to work from, no matter how complicated the situation may be. If we find that work must be performed, we’ll work with you and your budget to come up with a plan that suits your needs.

It’s time to see how your energy efficiency your home really is! Contact us today to learn more and to schedule an energy audit.
