Interest in energy audits has recently increased as a result of growing understanding of human impact upon global warming and climate change. Buildings are complex and contain numerous systems that interact, sometimes in not so obvious ways unless you are properly trained to understand these dynamics. You’ll want to have the assessment and then improvement performed right the first time by making sure both parts of the process are completed by certified professionals.
An energy audit is an inspection and analysis of energy flows in a building with the objective of understanding the energy efficiency home or building being audited. Typically an energy audit is conducted to seek opportunities to reduce the amount of energy used by the home or facility without negatively affecting the comfort of the home or the production/output in case of a business. This includes identifying the systems and areas of opportunity that will have the greatest impact in improving comfort, indoor air quality, durability & reliability, energy efficiency as well as the health and safety of the occupants.
