What Occurs During an Energy Assessment?

Many of us are looking for ways to make our homes greener. Whether we want to save energy, or we want to do our part in saving the planet, we here at AppleBlossom Energy want to help others with an energy assessment. An energy assessment is a test to give you the big picture view of how much energy your home uses. Many people have questions about what occurs during an energy assessment, and we would love to tell you more about the process.

During an energy assessment, we perform a variety of different tests to determine energy efficiency. These tests may include things like blower door tests, gas leak tests, visual inspections and a combustion analysis test. These tests help our professionals learn where there are leaks, where there is inadequate insulation and other pieces of information that can be valuable to your energy assessment. When combined with homeowner information, such as rooms that are consistently cold or information about your usual billing, we can give you an accurate outlook of what your home could be like with energy improvements.

Once our tests are done, we will take the time to walk through your home with you and point out areas that can be improved along with cost-saving measures that can be implemented. While we understand that many of these changes will require an initial investment, we will do our best to project the amount of money that this investment can save as a result of the improvements.
