What to Look for When Looking for a Home Energy Auditor

With the cost of energy going up, everybody is looking into anything that can help to ease some of the strain. Consumers are also becoming more energy conscious and you can show them that you are keeping up with the trends. Energy efficiency is on the top of everyone’s list and an energy audit can help you achieve your goal. Before you choose that auditor you need to know what to look for.

Make sure they have a good BBB rating.
It almost goes without saying that when you are trusting a company with something so important, you want to make sure that you are dealing with a reputable business. This will help save you the headache of somebody walking away with your deposit.

Make sure that they use a calibrated blower door
You want to make sure that your home or business is air tight, otherwise your money could be slipping out through the cracks. A blower door is a fan that mounts onto an exterior door frame and pulls air out of the house. The auditors then use a thermal imaging to see where the air is blowing out of the house. Having air tight doors also helps to avoid moisture and condensation problems and makes sure that your air quality isn’t contaminated by air pollution.
