Professional Home Energy Audit Our team performs home energy audits in Topeka and the surrounding area. We’ll perform a couple tests and inspections to find how your home can be more efficient. The audit starts off by checking the outside of your home for a snug fit around the walls, joints and eaves. Next, we’ll move inside and check for proper insulation in the attic as well as testing your furnace and water heat efficiencies. And, we’ll look at the seals and connections in your duct work and make sure air isn’t escaping. A final technique that could be used in a home energy audit is called a blower door test. This will help to find where air is getting in, measure the scope of leaks and use infrared cameras to reveal hard-to-detect areas of air infiltration and missing insulation. Our audit will show you where problems are and how to fix them. It may be as effortless as changing your light bulbs or updating your appliances. We’ll help you use energy more wisely and create a more comfortable, efficient home. Home energy audits may also be offered by the utility company in Topeka – give them a call to learn more.
