Residential energy audits

We no longer offer energy audits to our clients since the housing market activity has picked up significantly.   When working with buyers I am quick to point out deficiencies in the envelope of your future home.   We refer clients to Intech at 414-732-2234.  They are experts at all forms of insulation and air sealing. 

What you find out about on an energy audit:

Missing insulation

This older home was "totally renovated"  New drywall with no attic hatch. No attic access is usually a red flag!  The owners wondered why they had some heating bills over $400.00.  It was not even a large home!

 

 

Recessed lights allow warm air into the attic

Many time contractors use cheap can lights that are not rated for insulation contact and are not air sealed.   Essentially they are pulling warm conditioned air out of your living space into the attic and may cause mold and assist in formation of ice dams.

 

 

 Dropped soffits in kitchen

  These areas are usually open to the attic and is an uninsulated area.  This is why your dishes are as cold as ice in the winter!

 

 

 

Inadequate exterior wall insulation

 

Our thermal cameras will often determine poorly insulated walls

 

 

Attic access points

 

Attic hatches are typically not insulated nor weather-stripped.  Lots of warm air from the conditioned space moves into the attic.
