An Energy-Check is an add-on to a standard Home Inspection. Choose an Energy-Check to understand the basic energy performance of the home you are buying. Included within the main home inspection report will be an Energy-Check section that will outline improvement recommendations to consider once you own the home.
An Energy-Check is similar to an energy audit in that it defines components of a home that may have lower energy efficiency and describes ways in which you can improve these areas. The core difference from a standard energy audit is that no blower door test is performed to define where air leaks may be occurring.
A more energy efficient home not only saves you money but typically will lead to a more comfortable home during the extreme seasons. We recommend this add-on to your home inspection so you can address issues before you move in.
Included Energy-Check inspection areas:
Included is a review of
- Insulation levels
- Air-Leakage concerns
- Window performance
- Heating-Cooling system efficiency
- Water-Heating efficiency
- Lighting-Appliance recommendations
- Infra-Red scans of the home for energy related deficiencies
While not as comprehensive as a full Home Energy Audit, this check provides valuable input to a prospective home buyer relating to the energy efficiency considerations of your new home.
