What’s the catch you may wonder? With Triple H Contracting there isn’t one!
We’ve found that a common dilemma for Nassau and Suffolk homeowners is you know you need to do something to stop drafty rooms, high heating and cooling bills. But where are you supposed to turn when you know there is a problem but do not know where to start? There are plenty of folks around who want to “fix” your home, without really understanding where the problems lie. Our thorough, detailed, no-cost energy audit will locate where and how your home is under performing. Then, we’ll provide you with a complete diagnosis and a list of options that really will work for you.
And yes, this audit comes with no strings attached — it’s paid for through NYSERDA’s home energy efficiency program. We even take care of all the paperwork for you!
What is a Home Energy Audit?
Our no-cost home energy audit looks at your home from attic to basement to see how and where valuable energy may be lost. The audit also includes a health and safety inspection to be certain that your home is free of hidden dangers that could cause injury or illness. The professionals at Triple H Contracting have been certified by the respected Building Performance Institute (BPI) to review and measure your home’s energy use and ensure the health and safety of your home. BPI is the national source for certification and standards for home energy performance. Our BPI certified home energy audit team will inspect your entire home and use our specialized equipment to test for leaks in your home’s exterior envelope and ductwork, as well as check your home’s insulation. We’ll test for dangerous carbon monoxide (CO) in two ways: first with a combustion analysis of your heating system and second by wearing a CO monitor to detect other sources in your home’s indoor air.
A Typical Home Energy Audit May Include:
- Visual inspection of home exterior to spot any obvious problems
- Inspections of attic, basement and interior walls and ceilings
- Inspection of ductwork, heating and cooling systems
- Blower door test to determine where outside air is leaking in
- Infrared camera imaging that can identify leaks and poor insulation
- Duct blaster to find leaks in ductwork
- Health & safety inspection to identify CO levels and moisture problems that may cause mold
What Will an Energy Assessment Reveal?
Once we’re finished with the inspection, we’ll use specialized computer modeling to pinpoint where the problem areas of your home actually are. We find that many homes have hidden and not-so-hidden leaks that are stealing energy dollars. So what is the big deal about a few leaks, you may wonder? Well, leaks from common features like recessed lighting will add up over time; if you’ve got 15 or 20 leaky recess lights, it can be the same as leaving a couple of windows open—all year long! Once we know what’s going on, we can find the right prescription to start saving those lost energy dollars.
