Your Alameda County home is a complex system of heating, cooling, ventilation and insulation. The better these systems work together, the better your home performs and the more comfortable your family feels. The first step to improving your home’s performance is a comprehensive energy audit conducted by a trained technician from All Things Good.
Does My Home Need an Energy Audit?
If you’ve noticed some of the following symptoms, your home’s performance may not be up to par:
Rooms that are too hot or too cold
Increased energy bills
Overworked furnace or AC
Musty or damp smell
If your home has any of these symptoms, it’s time to schedule a home energy audit with All Things Good.
What is an Energy Audit?
Your house has many systems that need to work together to keep you cozy and comfortable. When your energy auditor from All Things Good arrives, he or she will begin a comprehensive examination of your home’s unique design and systems, including:
Building Envelope: walls, floors, roof, and basement
Insulation: this material keeps you warm in winter and cool in summer
Ductwork: the delivery system for heated and cooled air
HVAC systems: furnace, boiler, central air, water heater
Current Energy Usage
How Does an Energy Audit Work?
FIrst on the energy audit checklist is a visual inspection from roof to basement, outside and inside. The energy auditor will make note of potential problems like loose shingles, poor drainage, obvious gaps, excess moisture or ineffective attic insulation. Then the All Things Good energy auditor will employ several specific tools to analyze your home’s performance, including:
Blower Door Test
Infrared Thermal Imaging Camera
HVAC Health & Safety Tests
What Happens Next?
Once these tools have been used to analyze your home’s systems, we’ll compile a detailed report using specialized computer modeling. Then, we’ll develop a list of potential improvements to fix the underlying causes of poor performance. We take a straightforward and honest approach to help you make informed decisions. Our goal is to provide energy efficiency measures that work for you. We’ll also help you navigate the incentives, rebates and financing you may qualify for by improving your energy efficiency.
