We’ll do inspections and tests inside and outside of your home. We’ll examine your outdoor walls and joints, paying special attention to the eaves. We look for a snug fit to make sure no air is getting in – or out – of your home. Inside, we inspect your insulation in the attic and around your furnace and water heater. At the end, we’ll check the duct work for correct seals that trap in your heated or conditioned air so it’s released where you want. A blower door is an additional test that may be included in your home energy audit. This test identifies and measures leaks using infrared cameras to figure out which areas may have insufficient insulation or air infiltration. When you undertake a home energy audit with Central Air Inc, we’ll map out where problems are and what your options are to fix them. Solutions may range from the inexpensive, such as changing your light bulbs to the larger cost options, such as reinsulating areas of your home or replacing an appliance. Our goal is to help you achieve better home comfort, so call 503-656-1908 to schedule a home energy audit today. Portland Metro utility companies may also offer similar audits.
